The Southampton Writers Conference at Stony Brook Southampton will once again offer a Master Class led by best-selling author Roger Rosenblatt and featuring esteemed guest writers during this year’s event, running from July 6 to 16.
“Imagine What You Know: Five Ways of Looking at Writing” is a groundbreaking approach to examining the art and craft of writing for every genre, using a multi-media array of music, film clips and other works of art to broaden and deepen the discussion. The class was designed by Rosenblatt to be as useful for accomplished writers as it is for those taking their first steps or simply exploring the idea of writing.
All those who sign up for the Master Class will have access to everything that is offered during the 10-day conference—evening salons, guest author readings, panel discussions and more—with the only exception being graduate credit-bearing workshops.
In an effort to encourage broader participation by East End residents and seasonal visitors, the Writers Conference is offering a locals’ discount of $100 off the standard $975 fee for the Master Class. For more information, or to apply, visit www.stonybrook.edu/writers or email Christian.McLean@stonybrook.edu. The deadline for obtaining the discount is June 20; applicants should use the code locl (local without the a) when applying to get the discount.
