Redbud in the News


NC State’s The technician, oct. 2019

Writing is one of the many keys to unlocking creativity and self-expression. It is a way of understanding and interpreting the world, whether it be fiction or nonfiction writing. This is the message behind the Redbud Writing Project, an adult education writing school within the Triangle.


Indy week, july 2019

Often found in bigger urban centers, programs like GrubStreet in Boston and Sackett Street in New York City are reimagining the literary landscape with intensive writing programs for adults with day jobs.

This August, the Triangle gets its own community model in the form of the Redbud Writing Project, a series of rigorous six-week classes taught by recent N.C. State MFA graduates Arshia Simkin and Emily Cataneo.

The goal of the Redbud Writing Project is two-fold: to give students concrete feedback on their work and craft-related suggestions, and to allow students to meet writing friends, critique partners, and mentors. We’re a school, but also a community: we host readings to celebrate our students and offer scholarships to foster inclusivity.
