The Looseleaf Writing Workshop Series presents the craft expertise of Sycamore Review staffers and the Creative Writing Program at Purdue to the Greater Lafayette area. Looseleaf provides free workshops across the community in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, as well as publishing and other special topics.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, Looseleaf volunteers led workshops at the New Community School, Tippecanoe County Public Libraries and the Cary Home for Children in Lafayette. Looseleaf has recently begun a new workshop series with K-6th graders at Lafayette Urban Ministries, including Write Where You’re From, a monthly field trip program that engages students with local points of interest. Looseleaf has also partnered up with Pride Lafayette for an LGBT-focused series of monthly workshops at their downtown community center.

Kelsey Ronan directs the program. Contact her at kronan@purdue.edu for more information.
