Each semester of the 2023-24 academic year, CLA will host a Writer-in-Residence who works with community members and SJSU students across genres. This program provides meaningful mentorship and connections for all participants. The Writer-in-Residence will provide one-on-one feedback and give a public lecture or reading.
Kate Folk, author of Out There, is the Spring 2024 Writer-in- Residence. Kate will give feedback to 5-10 writers on a first come, first served basis.

"The CLA is doing vital work for the literary community in the Bay Area. Their efforts yield invaluable opportunities for the exchange of creative ideas, bringing writers of all stages together in a variety of beneficial contexts. Their programs are a tremendous resource for writers and readers alike."
Colin Winnette, Fall 2023 Writer-in-Residence
