The Creative Writing Program is pleased to announce a colloquium with Laleh Khadivi!

Laleh Khadivi is an author of fiction and non-fiction. Her Kurdish Trilogy and short fiction have been awarded the Whiting Award, The Barnes and Noble Discover New Writers Award, an NEA grant and a Pushcart Prize. Her storytelling extends to the screen and to journalism with works appearing in the New York Times, LA Times, SF Chronicle, VQR and other publications and broadcast on A&E and at film festivals internationally.

Khadivi is this year's Stein Visiting Writer. Each year, the Creative Writing Program welcomes a distinguished writer to teach a Stanford writing seminar to undergraduates. Khadivi's seminar will be Reading for Writers: The Nature of Details. These seminars are made possible with the generous support of Isaac and Madeline Stein.
