Visiting Writers Series
One of the most anticipated aspects of the MFA in Creative Writing residencies is the Visiting Writers Series. Visiting writers are generous with their expertise and share their craft with students through readings, workshops, and informal discussions.
Alumni Readers Series
The MFA in Creative Writing Program is proud of the program’s alumni. During each residency, the program is pleased to bring in alumni to celebrate and share their professional achievements with students through readings, workshops, and panels. Recent and upcoming alumni readers include Kiara Brinkman, Mark Doty, Karen Essex, and Martha Southgate.
Playwrights Enrichment Series
Fall 2008 marked the start of the low-residency MFA in Creative Writing Program’s Playwrights’ Enrichment Series, which was made possible by an anonymous gift from a program alumnus.
Visiting Professionals Series
In addition to the publishing panels offered at each residency, the MFA in Creative Writing Program has recently begun inviting industry professionals to their share expertise with students and to offer tools and resources to help students with career development.
