The Image Text Ithaca (ITI) initiative was founded in 2014 at Ithaca College by faculty directors Nicholas Muellner and Catherine Taylor to bring together an independent press, ongoing workshops and symposia, and a low-residency M.F.A. program at the intersection of writing and visual media. Through experimentation, adventure, and creative exchange, participants have developed ideas, relationships, and tactics, creating a vibrant international community of writers, photographers, editors, publishers, and educators. ITI is excited to share that as of 2023, a new Image Text M.F.A. will be launched in the Department of Art at Cornell University, and the ITI Press will continue to produce creative and critical publications. Please visit the Image Text M.F.A. program page for more information about the program and how to apply.
