About the Norman Mailer Writers Colony
“The purpose of the colony is to nurture the development of future writers by using Mailer’s contributions to literary culture as a guiding force. Norman Mailer (1923-2007) was a giant of American letters, the author of more than 40 books, including The Naked And The Dead; The Armies Of The Night; The Fight; Tough Guys Don’t Dance and the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Executioner’s Song.”
