Stony Brook Southampton Arts

Southampton Arts is a vibrant community that gathers together graduate programs in creative writing, theatre and film. Today’s professional practice as an artist demands well-rounded, independent, imaginative entrepreneurs, ones with the resourcefulness to draw on a range of media, technologies and genres.


Southampton campus is home to a nationally recognized graduate program in Creative Writing and Literature, Stony Brook’s Center for Wine, Food and Culture, the Pollock-Krasner Library and the nearby Pollock-Krasner House, the Avram Theater, and the three-decades-old Summer Writers Conference, which annually attracts many of the country’s literary stars. In 2008, the Writers Conference expanded to include a Children's Literature Conference and a Screenwriting Conference.
