The University, including the Alumni Center, remain closed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Here are short-term plans for Columbia Fiction Foundry.

  • We will resume our live Saturday and Wednesday workshops at the Alumni Center when the University reopens, hopefully by Saturday, June 4. However, if the University is not re-opened by June 4, we will hold another virtual workshop on Zoom.

  • We will continue our Saturday Virtual Workshops through the summer, when the Alumni Center is traditionally closed over the weekend. By summer's end, we sincerely hope we will be able to resume our live workshops at the University. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us at with any questions you may have.
