Dean Young writing master class and reading at University of Missouri – Kansas City
February 24, 2013, 12:00 AM – February 26, 2013, 12:00 AM EST
New Letters quarterly and its audio companion, New Letters on the Air, are part of a national literary tradition that serves readers and writers across the world. Started as a publication of the private University of Kansas City in 1934, New Letters continues to seek the best new writing, whether from established writers or from those just ready to be discovered; and it will support those writers, readers and, yes, listeners, who want to experience the joy of writing that both surprises and inspires us all. Part of that tradition includes promoting readings and related events in Kansas city and outlying regions in Missouri and Kansas.
Poet and 2013 Cockefair Chair writer-in-residence, Dean Young, will hold a master class on writing, Sunday, 2-5 p.m., room 104 Cockefair Hall, UMKC; and he will conduct a public interview with faculty and a reading Monday, 6:00 p.m., Plaza branch of the Kansas City, Mo., public library. These events are produced and directed by the UMKC English Department’s M.F.A. Program in Creative Writing, cosponsored by the Writers at Work Series and the Kansas City Public Library. Financial support comes from the Cockefair Chair in Continuing Education.
