Sergio Chejfec will offer a creative writing workshop in Spanish to interested faculty, graduate students and advanced Spanish undergraduate students. The writing workshop is titled “Comienzos para principiantes."Since 1990 Argentine writer Chejfec has published more than a dozen books of fiction, poetry and essays. In a recent review of one of his novels the "Times Literary Supplement" observed that “it is hard to think of another contemporary writer who, marrying true intellect with simple description of a space, simultaneously covers so little and so much ground.” Three of his novels, "My Two Worlds," "The Planets" and "The Dark" were published in English translation by Open Letter. He has been a fellow of the Guggenheim Foundation in 2000 and the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in 2007. His work has also been translated into French, German and Portuguese.Chejfec currently lives in New York and teaches in the Creative Writing in Spanish Program at NYU.This event is sponsored by the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts and the Department of Romance Languages.
