Mission Statement

We all connect through stories. The American Writers Museum is opening in Chicago in March 2017. In the run up to the opening, The Creative Process exhibition has been launched and will be traveling to universities and museums, beginning with the Sorbonne in March 2016. The Creative Process exhibition consists of interviews and painted portraits of over 100 esteemed writers, including Joyce Carol Oates, Hilary Mantel, Tobias Wolff, Richard Ford, Junot Díaz, Marie Darrieussecq, Michel Faber, Neil Gaiman, T.C. Boyle, Jay McInerney, George Saunders, Geoff Dyer, Dave Eggers, Etgar Keret, Douglas Kennedy, Sam Lipsyte, and Yiyun Li, among others. The Creative Process aims to foster discussions among students and visitors about literature, the creative process and the importance of the humanities. In these insightful interviews writers discuss their work and themes, touching upon issues of greatest importance to us today.


In addition to author readings and supporting events at universities, interviews, related essays and creative works will be published across a network of university and national literary magazines. This interlinking online exhibition is a platform for students, professors and general readers to publish their work, engage with authors, and participate in The Creative Process.

Some of the universities participating in the physical exhibition and/or interlinking online exhibition: Sorbonne, UC Berkeley, MIT, Columbia University, Oxford University, University of Edinburgh, University of Milan, University of Toronto, Trinity College Dublin, University of Iowa, University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, among others.

It is our aim to bring the physical exhibition to 40 universities around the world, with 100+ institutions participating in the interlinking online exhibition. To learn more about The Creative Process and find out how to get involved, visit us at: www.creativeprocess.info
