Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing 2013

The Classroom

I’ve recently returned from a week on Martha’s Vineyard where I was an instructor in the the Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing. This was my third year working as an instructor for the institute. This year’s session, the institute’s fourth, was the best of all, with an amazing selection of poetry and fiction instructors and a group of truly inspiring and inspired students all working together in the elegant surroundings of this beautiful island.

If you are interested in attending as a student, I encourage you to keep an eye on the institute’s website early next year as details for the 2014 session become available. In the meantime, here are some of my snapshots of this year’s teaching faculty. [NB: We didn’t actually spend all of our time at the beach, despite how these pictures may appear.]
