praise from Michael Cunningham
"I had a wonderful time at Writers House. Among its other virtues, it was the first academic setting I can remember that felt entirely stimulating and generous and, well, un-creepy; the first about which I've felt I'd like to be some sort of part some time in the future." ---Michael Cunningham, the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Hours and a Writers House Fellow in 2002.
...was a Fellow in 2007, and got very comfortable at KWH. Here she is, above, with Eric Karlan on the green couch.
free & open to the public
Students in the Fellows seminar should bear in mind that our Fellows events are free and open to the public - and that there are Philadelphians who look forward every spring to these sessions.
Steve Heuman, a Philadelphian and regular attendee of Writers House Fellows events, wrote: "We are so happy that we 'discovered' your cozy corner of the campus shortly after I retired six years ago. While we've participated in the programs in a more limited way than we'd like, we have found that every time we come to KWH it has been a fascinating experience. The Fellows program has broadened our reading ...adding works from those whom we had previously read and introducing us to others. And there are precious few such intimate settings where one can listen to the McPhees, the Fords, the Ozicks and the Doctorows (among others) read from their works and respond to questions. Meeting Penn undergraduates and being able to see how they are energized by the Writers House is so encouraging. Everyone needs a place that they can call their own, and it's wonderful to see so many claiming Writers House."
