“The experiential nature of this workshop allows me to be in the moment…It is also not about Hemingway, it is about me. Very liberating indeed…it is really allowing my writing to go to new places. It is as if you said the magic words that opened the door.”

Nina Goss earned a PhD and MFA at the University of Washington in Seattle. She teaches creative writing at Fordham’s College at Sixty Program and is co-editor of the book, Dylan at Play. She spent immeasurable hours watching her father try on suits in Barney’s, where the Rubin Museum is now located, which taught her the virtues of patience and endurance she now explores aesthetically in the same spot of ground. Karma!
