Other Features: 

This program is the first graduate-level writer’s program offered by an American college that includes residencies that take place exclusively in Europe. It combines European cultural studies with master’s level coursework in creative writing. Students complete three fifteen-day summer residencies at different European locales and may pursue cross-genre study.

We have deadlines for each of three entrances into the program: fall distance learning (July 29), spring distance learning (November 29), summer residency (March 1).
