Harman Writing Fellow Program
About the Harman Writing Fellow Program
Launched in the Spring of 2014, the Harman Writing Fellow Program brings acclaimed emerging authors, poets and journalists to Baruch College each semester to conduct a writing workshop with members of Encounters Magazine, Baruch’s literary and arts magazine, and other interested students.
Within an intimate setting, students get to experiment with their writing and receive feedback from the writer, while also discussing issues surrounding craft as well as the business of being a writer. Students receive gift copies of the writers’ books.
The Harman Writing Fellow Program is made possible by a gift from the Harman Foundation, which provides support to enhance the College’s Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence Program.
Since its inception, the Program has hosted a host of writers across genres: novelists Justin Torres (We The Animals), Tiphanie Yanique (Land of Love and Drowning), and Téa Obreht (The Tiger’s Wife); Nonfiction writer Nina Sharma and Poets Laurie Ann Guerrero (A Tongue in The Mouth Of The Dying), Quincy Scott Jones (The T-Bone Series); Wendy Xu (Phrasis), Morgan Parker (Other People’s Comfort Keps Me Up At Night) and Angel Nafis (BlakGirl Mansion); and short story writer Nafissa Thompson-Spires (Heads of the Colored People).
