The Norman Mailer Writers Colony


From Lawrence Schiller

Provincetown, MA, beautiful coastal community of artists and thinkers, is ready to welcome you to the fourth season of summer workshops and fellowships at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony. Mailer’s living room, looking out over Cape Cod Bay, will again host emerging and mid-career writers who wish to further their craft with the company and guidance of distinguished authors, faculty and visitors. 

During 2012, the Center and the Writers Colony will offer workshops from May 19, through September 15, in various areas of creative writing. These workshops are open to students and writers through an application process which is based on merit. The faculty for these workshops are established teachers, writers and editors. Applications and a list of creative writing workshops for 2012 are available now on the Colony web site. Each workshop application has its own closing date between March 16 and April 30, 2012.
