Throughout the spring, Lang’s First-Year Writing Program is hosting a series of weekly lunches where faculty (and some special guests) will present dynamic and interactive lessons in the craft of writing. These lunches will be held on Tuesday afternoons, 12:30-1:30, and are open to the entire New School community. Food from the stellar neighborhood restaurant Kubeh will be provided. Lunches will be held in room 510, 66 West 12th Street (except on Feb. 5!, when the talk will be in room 1103 of 6 East 16th Street).

Here’s a schedule of the presenters and their talks:
