The Residency allows students and faculty to immerse themselves in the work of writers: reading, writing, and sharing ideas. The classes and workshops are informative, intensive, and inspirational. Students have the opportunity to learn from every faculty member, in every genre, while discovering which mentors are best suited for their own work. Everyone, faculty and students, gathers informally at most meals and the entire group shares several meals including the informal "graduation" ceremony.
The Residency is the exhausting and exhilarating highlight of the year. It is during
the Residency that students and faculty establish a sense of community that sustains
them throughout the rest of the year.
