Goldwater Hospital Writing Workshop Fellowships

goldwater.jpg  Upon admission to the program, graduate students are considered for year-long teaching fellowships at Roosevelt Island’s Coler-Goldwater Hospital, a public facility for the severely physically challenged. Every Friday afternoon, Goldwater Fellows conduct a creative writing workshop for a group of twelve to twenty residents, meet with them in individual tutorials, and assist in transcribing their work. Fellows also help publish the Golden Writers’ Anthology at the end of each semester and coordinate readings of their students’ work. The Goldwater Writing Project was founded in 1986 by Jean Kennedy Smith, Rose Styron, and Sharon Olds. It has become a vital part of the NYU community and of the residential community at Coler-Goldwater Memorial Hospital.
