The City of Words IPQ Project group is with the goal of creating a web site featuring writers associated with Worcester. It is based on the website Worcester Area Writers, which was created by WPI faculty and students some years ago. We are placing heavy emphasis on bringing living writers to the new site, creating a multi-media platform that includes videos of writers reading their works, interviews, audio, and photographs of places in Worcester connected with their work. The group continually seeks creative and original ways to display the site's content. Students are required to produce these materials as well as write biographies and critical analysis of the writers for which they are responsible.
