Dedmon Writer-in-Residence Series

Claire and Emmet Dedmon Writer-in-Residence Series

The Dedmon fund brings a distinguished visitor each year who is engaged in exploration of the interdisciplinary aspects of art—whether that means the use of a variety of artistic genres or the use of genres that incorporate more than one creative practice, such as the documentary film or the graphic novel.

The 2021 Dedmon Writer-in-Residence is Cathy Park Hong. 

Hong will participate in readings and panels as part of our Literary Arts Lab festival. Visit for details.
