International Writing Program Engages with PNCA Campus
October 09, 2009
For one dynamic week, PNCA’s campus was enlivened by the work and insight of five international writers from University of Iowa’s “International Writing Program”:http://iwp.uiowa.edu/index.html.
The five writers included: Fflur Dafydd, a novelist, literary critic and musician from Wales; Soheil Najm, a poet from Iraq; Osman Conteh, a novelist from Sierra Leone; Fedosy Santaella, a fiction writer from Venezuela; and Lijia Zhang, a nonfiction writer from China.
Along with engaging the community during a free and public lecture on October 5 at the College, the group participated in a range of literary events in the Portland area, including “Wordstock”:http://www.wordstock.com.
PNCA would like to thank PNCA faculty member and writer-in-residence Barry Sanders for organizing the visit and the community as a whole for participating.
