Shapiro Center for Creative Writing and Criticism

Welcome to the Shapiro Center for Creative Writing and Criticism! 
The Center's classes, events, projects, and internships teach students at Wesleyan how the pursuit of knowledge and artistic practice can co-exist, both in the university and beyond it. We aim to help readers, writers, and artists from all backgrounds take pleasure in the verbal arts, ranging from translated fiction to graphic novels to audiobooks. Here you will find some of the world's most distinguished novelists, poets, translators, illustrators, and critics.
