Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics Summer Writing Program at Naropa University

The Summer Writing Program is the cornerstone of the MFA in Writing and Poetics at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University. BA students in Writing and Literature may also take courses for credit as part of the major. In dialogue with renowned practitioners, students engage in the composition of poetry, prose fiction, cross-genre possibilities, interarts, translation, and writing for performance. Participants work in daily contact with some of the most accomplished and provocative writers of our time, meeting individually and in small groups so that both beginning and experienced writers find equal challenge in the program. The Summer Writing Program is a colloquium of poets, fiction writers, scholars, translators, performance artists, activists, Buddhist teachers, musicians, printers, editors, and others working in small press publishing. Programming includes workshops, lectures, panels, readings, special events, and more. All three weeks (or any combination of weeks) are open to any interested participant for noncredit. Students from other institutions or degree programs may also elect to attend for undergraduate or graduate credit. Scholarships available.
