Hampshire Writers Advisory Council

Alums who studied creative writing at Hampshire have gone on to become poets, writing teachers, novelists, literary agents, nonfiction writers, publishers, editors, journalists, marketing mavens, ghostwriters, content creators, freelancers, bloggers, children’s book authors, scriptwriters, comic book authors, and more. But how did they do it?

The Hampshire Writers Advisory Council provides opportunities for alumni and student writers to explore the landscape of writing careers and to demystify both the opportunities and challenges that writers face.

Alumni members of the council share ideas that come from their own experiences, as well as from those of their friends and colleagues. Hampshire staff and faculty also facilitate opportunities for students to engage.

Upcoming Events

Saturday, October 16 | 3:30-5 p.m. | Merrill Pavilion, In-person Only!

Calling all writers! Whether you are just starting out, wishing you had more time to write, venturing into publishing for the first time, or feeling like a veteran in the field, come meet and connect with fellow alum and student writers. Ask questions, give and get support, find community, and discover the work of Hampshire writers you never knew existed. Writers of all genres and experience levels, and anyone who is just curious about what Hampshire writers have been up to, are welcome. This gathering will be facilitated by members of the Writer's Council.
