Sarah Lawrence College Partners with the Mayapple Center: “Responding to Human Rights Issues through the Arts”

June 11-17, 2017

Sarah Lawrence College has embarked on an innovative partnership with Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities to offer summer programs in the arts and humanities that address contemporary issues within global society. This summer's program is a one-week creative writing intensive for adults led by Mohammed Naseehu Ali and centered around the theme, Responding to Human Rights Issues through the Arts.

The Mayapple & Sarah Lawrence College Summer Intensive provides a welcoming environment where writers can truly focus on their writing. Participants are encouraged to take creative and intellectual risks and to cross disciplinary boundaries. The workshop is capped at fifteen writers, ensuring that each individual will be heard. Following the daily workshop, participants will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with the instructor. Participants will share their final projects in a reading as a culmination of the workshop.
