Literary Journalism offers eight established writers of non-fiction an opportunity to develop a major essay, memoir, or feature piece. A month-long residency enables writers to work on their manuscript during individual consultations with faculty and during round-table discussions. Participants are able to advance their professional development through work with the program chair, experienced and exacting faculty editors, and through interaction with each other, invited guest speakers, and with artists from other fields. In addition to a $2000 commission fee, writers accepted to this program will receive an award to cover the program fee and travel expenses.


Self-directed Writing Residency

These residencies offer the time, space, and facilities for creative thinking, editing, and manuscript development. Writers in all genres are invited to apply.
