We’re now ready to announce the three Kelly Writers House Fellows for spring ’17. They are:

Maria Bamford - February 13-14, 2017 - comedian/performer/writer
Nathaniel Mackey - March 20-21, 2017 - poet/essayist/novelist/scholar of jazz, improvisation & the avant-garde
Lydia Davis - April 24-25, 2017 - writer of short fiction (including micro- or flash fiction)/translator

Each visit features (among other things) a reading/presentation/performance on the Monday night starting at exactly 6:30 PM, and, the next morning, a 10 AM brunch-time conversation interview moderated by me.

If you know now that you want to attend one or more of those events, contact Lily Applebaum at whfellow@writing.upenn.edu .

The Fellows program has as its basis a seminar (regular course for credit) taught in the Arts Cafe of KWH on Monday afternoons from 2-5 PM. This year the KWH Fellows Seminar will consist of a deep study of the work of Bamford, Mackey and Davis, in turn, and during the Fellow’s visit those in the class will have the chance to spend three hours in discussion with her or him.

For much more about KWH Fellows, and about Bamford, Mackey, and Davis, please go here:

Yours,
