Clarion English professor Dr. Philip Terman accompanied six students to the 2017 Chautauqua Writers’ Festival June 15-18. The festival, held annually in June, brings six established professional, award-winning writers who work with attendees on fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

Students who attended this year include: Imarii Anderson, Erie; Martin Mateer, Strattanville; Olivia Stuckley, Cheswick; Erica Greer, Pittsburgh; Andrew Skubisz, Dubois; and Katrina Hoff, Oil City.

In addition to Clarion University, other festival sponsors include: Penn State (Erie), University of North Carolina at Wilmington, University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg and Monmouth University.
