The Image Text Ithaca initiative at Ithaca College brings together an independent press, ongoing workshops and symposia, and a low-residency MFA program at the intersection of writing and photography.

Across these programs, we seek to build an international community of writers, photographers, editors and publishers. Through experimentation, adventure and creative exchange, participants develop ideas, relations, tactics and traditions in order to articulate a field in the most robust sense.

The ITI press, modeled on contemporary photographic and literary small presses, publishes innovative works of text and image by national and international writers and artists.

The Ithaca College low-residency Image-Text MFA is a first-of-its-kind terminal degree program anchored around the work of the press and the ongoing workshops and symposia.
