The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) writing program is distinct from more conventional programs in that it brings together a community of writers and artists at one of the nation's most influential colleges of art and design and draws on a distinguished faculty with diverse artistic and intellectual concerns. Core faculty—writers of poetry and prose and artists in performance; film, video, and new media; visual communication design; printmedia; and painting—are augmented by visiting writers, artists, and scholars. In this unique community of writers and artists, hybrid works, new forms, and collaborative projects are encouraged.
