The Purchase Writers Center (PWC) provides a focus for student engagement in activities involving writers and writing. It demonstrates that writing is not and should not be simply a classroom or credited curricular activity. It draws together writers from across Purchase College, including students and faculty in creative writing, journalism, literature, playwriting and screenwriting, and other programs.
Each year, the PWC hosts a group of fellows, who are provided with offices and given access to the resources of the college. Fellows conduct workshops, meet with students in small groups, lead writing workshops for students, and, along with other Purchase writers, read from their work, host public readings and other get-togethers, and participate in panel discussions.
