This sampler set from Ithaca Press includes nine small-form books of experimental writing and cross-disciplinary work from Ithaca University’s MFA program.
The Image Text Ithaca initiative at Ithaca College brings together an independent press, ongoing workshops and symposia, and a low-residency MFA program at the intersection of writing and photography.
Integrating theoretical and conceptual studies with intensive creative practice, the program seeks to create a community that brings photography and writing into a shared arena of discussion, including, but not limited to, cross-disciplinary and collaborative work. This approach evolves out of the intensive creative interactions featured in our previous ITI Workshops, where writers and photographers, both emerging and established, gathered to share and make work in an open, experimental and playful environment.
