McGovern Center-Inprint Writing Fellowship

In August 2022, the McGovern Center welcomed its inaugural class of Writing Fellows to explore what constitutes creative work and develop a writing practice they can maintain in the long run. Works of literary fiction, non-fiction, and poetry will aid Fellows’ learning of the methods and craft involved in creative works. The program welcomed its second class of writing fellows for the 2023-2024 academic year amid a new collaboration with Inprint. Now that it is entering its third year, the program is open for applications from potential Writing Fellows for the third class, starting in October 2024.

As part of this intensive writers’ workshop for health professionals, Writing Fellows participate in one 3-hour-long workshop monthly from October through May, discussing assigned readings, completing writing exercises, and engaging in supportive and critical analyses of their creative works.

The course instructor is Pritha Bhattacharyya, MFA, PhD, Inprint C. Glenn Cambor Fellow in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Houston, and Inprint Writer-in-Residence with the McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics.
