2015 Residency in Paris, France


In June 2015, the Ashland University MFA Program will offer a summer residency in Paris, France!

Write in the City of Light
June 13-27, 2015

You will embark on a two-week residency abroad, exploring the beautiful city of Paris through the eyes of a writer. Paris holds one of the greatest collections of cultural resources in the world, and its monuments, museums, parks, cafes, and shops will be our classroom. Students will participate in intensive workshops, discussions, readings, and in the literary and cultural life of the city as we begin to understand why Gertrude Stein said, “America is my country, and Paris is my hometown.”

The tour will include workshops with faculty mentors as well as craft seminars and evening readings with writers living in Paris.

Who May Participate in the Trip?
  • Students currently enrolled in the Ashland University MFA Program can participate in ENG 502: MFA in Paris as a substitute for the on-campus ENG 502 summer residency.
  • Students currently enrolled in the Ashland University MFA Program who have already taken ENG 502 may choose to take the course a second time during the Paris residency.
  • Students currently enrolled in other MFA programs.
  • Qualified undergraduate students.
  • Ashland University MFA graduates OR graduates of other MFA programs.
