WRITING | Creative Writing Lectures
Now in its fifth year, CWL brings distinguished writers to Columbia for original talks on literary craft. The writers are diverse and brilliant, with a wide range of artistic strategies, and each talk turns into a short course on the challenges of making vital literary art.
Hari Kunzru is the author of the novels The Impressionist (2002), Transmission (2004), My Revolutions (2007), and Gods Without Men (2011), and the story collection, Noise (2006). The Impressionist won the 2002 Betty Trask Award for first novels and the 2003 Somerset Maugham Award. In 2003, Granta named him one of the twenty “Best of Young British Novelists.” His second novel, Transmissions, was a 2004 New York Times Notable Book of the Year. His fiction and journalism have appeared in The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, Washington Post, Wired, and elsewhere. He is the Deputy President of English PEN and lives in New York City.
