Juried workshop instructors include returning faculty Steve Almond, Lidia Yuknavitch, Rebecca Makkai, and Emily Rapp Black, as well as newbies Ben Lerner, Jenny Offill, Jericho Brown, Alexandra Fuller, and Li-Young Lee. We'll also be offering a weeklong, non-juried workshop with Claire Vaye Watkins. We also welcome new faculty Chip Livingston, Christopher Merkner, Sibyl Gardner, Elizabeth Robinson, David J. Daniels, Jacob Appel, and many others, as well as the return of our all-star cast of Lighthouse regulars, including Shari Caudron, Erika Krouse, Denise Vega, Victoria Hanley, David Rothman, Ben Whitmer, Joanna Ruocco, Nick Arvin, John Brehm, and oodles more.
