The Writers Studio, the landmark school for creative writing and thinking founded and directed by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Philip Schultz, celebrates its 30th anniversary with the release of Epiphany Edition’s 400-page anthology, The Writers Studio at 30. The book is a compilation of fiction and poetry by current and former faculty and students, as well as The Writers Studio’s Advisory Board members Jennifer Egan, Robert Pinsky, Edward Hirsch, Carl Dennis, Matthew Klam, Rosanna Warren, and others. It also includes an introduction by Schultz on his unique approach to writing, which made the school a success.
The Writers Studio’s mission is to help anyone with a desire to write creatively acquire the technique necessary for full imaginative expression. Unlike any other writing program, it has developed a unique teaching method by encouraging students to “try on” different narrative voices or personas. As the understanding of craft deepens, so does the emotional power of the writing. Hundreds of book and magazine publications, awards, fellowships and residencies have been earned by current and past students, and are a testament to the effectiveness of this original method.
