Philip Carr-Harris

I woke up and went to bed reading poetry. I spent hours in the library. I had as much time as I could stand to write. Besides its distinguished faculty, visiting lecturers, and stunning physical beauty, Sewanee gave me the opportunity to settle into a serious rhythm of reading and writing which I am never able to do in the rest of my life.

At Sewanee I could immerse myself in an atmosphere that allowed me to learn about and practice what I am most interested in, the art and craft of writing, without compromising the life I lead the remainder of the year. It’s six intense weeks in a place where one can literally forget the world.

I can’t believe the six weeks went by so fast. The School of Letters far exceeded my expectations and I was captivated by Sewanee. I had a wonderful experience.
