2019 Summer Residency!

It's a chilly February day, but our minds are on summer. The 2019 Summer Residency will take place July 22nd to August 2nd this year. Readings and craft seminars by our visiting writers and faculty; panel talks by publishers; writing workshops in poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, science fiction, and fantasy -- you won't want to miss this! Check out our last post for photos of last year's residency. 

Creative Nonfiction Visiting Writer



We're thrilled that one of our visiting writers will be the highly acclaimed writer Hanif Abdurraqib!

Hanif is a Columbus-based poet, essayist, and cultural critic. His most recent book is Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes to a Tribe Called Quest (University of Texas Press, 2019), which is already a New York Times Bestseller. His essay collection They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us (Two Dollar Radio Press, 2017) was named book of the year by NPR, The Los Angeles Review, Buzzfeed, Paste, Esquire, Oprah Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, and others.

Stay tuned for more updates on our other visiting writers and residency programming. 

As always, a huge thank you to the Ohio Arts Council for the generous funding that makes it possible to provide much of our residency programming as free and open to the public.
