EN 550 Residencies


During the on-campus residencies (the first and third residencies), students take part in intensive workshops, meet one-on-one with their faculty advisers, participate in seminars and exercises with visiting writers, and generally build the cohesive community of the program. These last for one week, and they are conducted in August of the program’s first year, and January of the program’s second year.

Students spend the second residency, also for one week, abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland. During that time students take part in workshops and meetings with faculty, but they also will explore the area, meet with local writers, and produce work based on those experiences.
