"Not only the professional writers made my trip to Petersburg unforgettable, but the student writers, many of whom are published writers or writing instructors themselves, bonded with one another, encouraged one another, and met nightly in the beer garden to party with one another. " --Anna Medinger (SLS '00)

Literary Feature:

The Dostoyevsky Walk - James Boobar has been leading SLS Participants on The Dostoyevsky Walk for more than five years now. In this article he takes readers through the intricacies of the Dostoevsky's St. Petersburg, from wandering along the canals and streets of the setting for Crime and Punishment and Dostoevsky's old neighborhood, to following the path of his most famous protagonist, Raskolnikov, from his top floor graffiti-covered stairwell to the old pawnbroker's "residence."  (Reprinted courtesy of Post Road Magazine)
