2018 Summer Residency Highlights


Happy Summer! Campus is blooming, workshop packets are coming in, thesis manuscripts are going out to readers. And it's high time we started sharing some of the exciting things brewing for our 2018 Summer Residency. 

This year's residency begins Monday, July 23, ending with our graduation celebration on Thursday, August 2. In between we'll be welcoming more than 40 talented writers and editors to the microphone and classroom (including 21 of our own graduating students). 

As in past years, alumni and writers or readers in the community are very welcome to join us for evening readings, weekend events, and afternoon craft classes. But we're also planning a few events out in the community this year. 

* We'll also have several events at the Ashland Public Library, including a high school creative writing workshop, a presentation on getting published, and readings from our faculty and students. 

* MFA Fiction Faculty Kirstin Chen will give a book talk at Mansfield's Main Street Books on Wednesday, July 25. 

* We'll have an Open Mic night at Downtown Perk in Ashland. Come and join us. Listen or share!
