The Defense: An Introduction

The project defense allows Mark faculty and PEN staff to learn more about the participants' projects. This is the first official day of The Mark Program, and the participants have prepared to answer a series of detailed questions regarding the creation and crafting of their manuscript, as well as their future goals for the project.

Stay tuned for harold's and Mehnaz's take on the defense! Each participant will write a post about how it went.

Following the defense, the Mark faculty and PEN staff will prescribe goals for the manuscript and a workshop schedule. Informed by the defense, the participant will be encouraged to prepare for workshop, and is invigorated for the weeks ahead!
