Young Artists Institute
Oregon Center for the Arts
Hosted by: Southern Oregon University
July 26 - August 1
This is the only summer program of its kind in Oregon. Our goal is to provide a west coast experience parallel to The Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop and The Iowa Young Writers’ Studio. This is an institute that will eventually provide more options in drama, music and dance. This is our inaugural summer so the first two studios are in Creative Writing and the Visual Arts. Corey VanLandingham, a native Oregonian and graduate of Lewis and Clark (BA English) and Purdue (MFA and former editor of the Sycamore Review) is our Artist in Residence. She is currently a Stegner Fellow in Creative Writing at Stanford University.
