The Center for the Literary Arts Programming
The Center for the Literary Arts was created to serve as a hub for creative writing, translation, and different forms of literary arts and creative practice across the university and throughout the St. Louis community. Our goal is to generate new forms of exchange and cooperative experimentation not only in the traditional fields of creative writing and translation but also multilingual creative writing, new media, and inter-arts praxis. To this end, we are developing partnerships with literary, artistic, and cultural institutions throughout the St. Louis area to create programs in which literary and creative practices function as a bridge between academic and popular culture, and as a vehicle for social change.
The center’s programming is structured around three main categories, which are outlined below. We look forward to adding to and refining these offerings as we gather fresh ideas and feedback from all of you who are interested in what the Center can become.
