- The eager novice and the seasoned professional alike are mentored with equal seriousness and respect.

The culmination of more than a decade of cooperation with Prague's Charles University, the Prague Summer Program offers writers, photographers and students of literature and Jewish studies from a variety of backgrounds the opportunity to be mentored by some of the biggest names in contemporary English-language literature and world photography, as well as by luminaries of Central European culture.
