Kyle Lukoff Spearheads ‘Youth Lit Week’ for Emerging Writers
Coinciding with Family Week in Ptown, our first-ever Youth Lit Week will feature faculty who are renowned in the field of young people’s literature. Special guest curator Kyle Lukoff has developed an exciting week during our Summer Workshop Program that presents a range of workshops to help artists and writers improve their craft.
“The lineup runs the gamut of genres and mediums, according to Lukoff. ‘I love Provincetown and I’ve been going to events at the Fine Arts Work Center for years,’ he said of the impetus for Youth Lit Week. ‘I reached out to David Simpson, programs director at the Fine Arts Work Center, via email about how we might collaborate and he got back to me within an hour or two.’
Both Lukoff and the Fine Arts Work Center had been thinking of a similar idea, to diversify the program. ‘I was asked if I’d curate it,’ he said. When asked how he went about putting together the program, he explained, ‘I tried to choose authors who have a diversity within their own body of work, so that they can extend that diversity in their workshops.’ ”
