The Efroymson Center for Creative
Writing opened its doors on December 15th, 2011. Located at
530 West Hampton Drive, purchased and beautifully remodeled with a
$1 million donation from the Efroymson Family Fund, the Center is a
site for graduate-level workshops and public readings. It is also a
work space for visiting writers, visiting students, faculty and
alumni. The Efroymson Family Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana
Community Foundation, also sponsors the Efroymson Scholarships in
In its third year, our speakers series makes its home in the
Efroymson Center for Creative Writing. Meant to supplement the
popular Delbrook Visiting Writers Series, it offers more intimate
and interactive events from a wide range of genres and
perspectives, including: screenwriting and documentary, blogging,
graphic novels, book reviewing, editing, spiritual writing and
more. The series is intended to enrich the literary "conversation"
and community in the MFA program, on campus, and in the broader
Indianapolis community. All events in the series are
free and open to the public without tickets.
