Kimberly Williams, associate director of the Days-Massolo Center, was selected to participate in the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop held July 12-18 at Oxford University.
The competitive program was hosted by the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities and presented by Callaloo, a quarterly not-for-profit journal of African Diaspora arts and letters based at Texas A&M University. Sessions on fiction, poetry and nonfiction were featured, as well as a reading and lecture by Guyanese-British poet, novelist and playwright Fred D’Aguiar.
Callaloo was founded in 1976 and the creative writing workshops were introduced in 1997 as an outreach program to historically black colleges and universities. The program’s reach grew to include participants from the United States as well as from Canada, the United Kingdom and the Caribbean.
