2017 students of The New School Summer Writers Colony discuss where they came from and what they found in the program.
Since 1996, The New School has established itself as one of the most discerning, informed, and engaged graduate writing programs in the country. It's no accident that our alumni are among the most successfully published MFA graduates in the world, and have distinguished themselves as teachers, editors, publishers, and media professionals.
So far, in 2017, over 25 books were published by alumni; 10 books were published by faculty of The New School. For more about the books, stories, poems, essays, journals, films, organizations, and numerous other projects of our students and graduates, visit our blog, or our website page at The New School.
