A Celebration of Teaching and Writing

SCCC CREATIVE WRITING FESTIVAL

 

The English departments of Suffolk County Community College, the SCCC Office of Student Activities, and the SCC Association invite you to our 10th annual Creative Writing Festival.  Our week of events features a series of faculty and student readings, plus additional creative writing workshops from April 23-April 27, 2018, culminating in our traditional all-day conference. As always, we are bringing professional writers and teaching faculty from across the country to engage with SCCC students and faculty, and members of the Suffolk County community, for a day of conversation, writing, and celebration.
