Shapiro Creative Writing Center
September 2012: The Shapiro Creative Writing Center has moved to its new building at 167 High Street (corner of Church Street). The establishment of the Shapiro Creative Writing Center signals the importance the university attaches to writing. The Shapiro Center serves as a hub for writing activities and provides a venue for readings, workshops, colloquia, informal discussions, student-sponsored events, and receptions. Its lounge is open to all students enrolled in creative writing courses. The Center houses visiting writers, as well as Amy Bloom, the Kim-Frank Family University Writer-in-Residence. Amy Bloom hosts Table Talk events every Thursday throughout the fall and spring semesters. This event is open to all students.
The Writing Workshop has an office at Shapiro where students can seek additional help with their writing. The workshop is open from 7-11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday nights. Appointments can be made through student e-portfolios.John Shapiro ’74 and Shonni Silverberg M.D. ’76 of New York City established the center with a generous gift in 2009.
