About

Beginning in spring 2007, the New York University Creative Writing Program launched a series of intimate salons at the newly dedicated Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House. Students responded with enthusiasm to the events, especially to the informal atmosphere that encouraged conversations with writers whose work they admired. In a typical week, graduate courses are offered Monday through Wednesday, and readings are held Thursday and Friday evenings. In addition to readings by today’s most eminent writers and poets, scheduled events include faculty and alumni readings, readings from newly published literary magazines, panel discussions, and New Salons, which feature writers in conversation. The Emerging Writers Reading Series at KGB showcases graduate students of the NYU Creative Writing Program and features established writers as special guests.
