Writers are invited to the College from June 19 to 23 as the Manhattanville College M.F.A. in Creative Writing Program hosts the 32nd Summer Writers’ Week.

The week will include workshops and craft panels featuring professional writers from a wide array of genres to work with the participants on their craft. There will also be readings each night from the workshop faculty members and keynote reader Joseph O’Neill.

O’Neill is the author of “Netherland,” which won the 2009 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the 2009 Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award, and his most recent novel, “The Dog,” was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction and named a Notable Book of 2014 by the New York Times. O’Neill’s reading and discussion will take place on Wednesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. in Manhattanville’s Reid Castle.

The College will also welcome Rivka Galchen author of the nonfiction book, “Little Labors,” and the novel “Atmospheric Disturbances.” She is also a contributor to The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine and The Believer, and is a recipient of the 2006 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award.
