Creative Writing Workshop Conducted by the United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission

Creative Writing Workshop Conducted by the United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission

The United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission will be conducting a two-day workshop on creative writing for writers of prose fiction. The workshop will consist of discussions of modern writing, in-class writing assignments drawn
from the narrative approaches of those stories and discussions of participants’ work.

Workshop Coordinator:
Lori Reese, currently an American Fulbright scholar in Sri Lanka, received a Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina. Before returning to university, she worked as a journalist for four years, first as a reporter for TIME Magazine’s Asian edition in Hong Kong and later as a correspondent for Entertainment Weekly in New York. In North Carolina she has taught college-level English composition, literature and creative writing. In Hong Kong, her work on a TIME special issue, "China’s Amazing Half-Century," helped win the Society of Asian Publisher’s Award for Excellence in Magazines. She also won the 2004 Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award for the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. Lori is working on a book of creative non-fiction about Sri Lanka in the time of the tsunami.

The US-SL Fulbright Commission was founded in 1952 by an Agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of Ceylon for the administration of educational exchange programmes in Sri Lanka. The programme aims to promote cultural understanding between the United States and Sri Lanka through mutual academic exchange.
