No prior submission of work required. \nBoris Fishman immigrated to the U.S. at nine\, from the former Soviet Union. He is the author of the novels A Replacement Life (which won the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award and the American Library Association’s Sophie Brody Medal)\, and Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo\, both New York Times Notable Books of the Year\, and Savage Feast\, a family memoir told through recipes. His journalism has appeared in The New Yorker\, The New York Times Magazine\, The Wall Street Journal\, Vogue\, Travel + Leisure\, The London Review of Books\, The Washington Post\, and many other publications. He lives in New York and teaches creative writing at Princeton University. \nRegistration required to receive link for virtual workshop.  URL: LOCATION:Livestreamed via Crowdcast ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
