The MAWP is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for graduate students to work with visiting writer William Lychack, author of The Architect of Flowers, a new short-story collection that novelist Charles Baxter describes as “an amazing accomplishment, very complex and exceptionally beautiful.” In addition to reading from his work on the evening of April 14, Lychack has agreed to conduct a Master Class, in which he will discuss the work of three graduate students in the MAWP. Anyone may attend the actual class, but the work of only three graduate students will be discussed.
If you would like to submit work for consideration for this Master Class, please email a single piece of short fiction to Miles Harvey (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, April 4. And even if you don’t submit, mark your calendars! Everyone will benefit from hearing the response of a successful author to these drafts.
William Lychack’s work has appeared in The Best American Short Stories, The Pushcart Prize, The American Scholar, Ploughshares, The Southern Review, and other places, including public radio’s This American Life. He is the author of a novel, The Wasp Eater, and currently lives in Stamford, Vermont, and teaches in the Low-Residency MFA Program at Lesley University.
