M.F.A. Program at CofC Launches Dorothea Benton Frank Writing Series

Published

on

The MFA of Creative Writing program at the College of Charleston (CofC) today announced The Dorothea Benton Frank Writing Series (DBF), which will offer students meaningful opportunities to engage with established writers and professionals working in the field of publishing who can diversify and extend the literary conversation on campus beyond required coursework. 

The DBF Writing Series will have two components that will offer a balance of artistic and professional approaches to the writer’s life and work: the Master Class and Industry Talks. Each year, the Master Classes will bring two established writers with a national reputation to campus to meet with graduate students from the MFA program. The visiting writer will conduct a Master’s Class session featuring  a craft talk, a workshop, critiques of student works-in-progress, writing exercises, and/or focused discussions on the writer’s development and career. Industry Talks will feature industry professionals to share their expertise and advice to help students understand the publishing industry and the profession of being a writer.

The group’s inaugural event will feature author Adriana Trigiani. On March 4th, Trigiani will virtually deliver a reading from her latest novel, Tony’s Wife. The following day, on March 5th, she will teach a Master Class to CofC students. Trigiani is a New York Times bestselling author of fiction and nonfiction; an award-winning playwright, television writer and producer, and filmmaker; and the cofounder of the Origin Project, an in-school writing program for students in Appalachia.
