Each academic year of this two year low-residency program begins with an annual 15-day residency abroad, rotating annually among Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Santiago. In addition to the program's creative writing curriculum in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry, these residencies include a cultural curriculum specific to each city.

The residencies are followed by two consecutive semesters of distance learning. The program ends with a third and final graduating residency.

We offer study in five genres: fiction, young adult, creative nonfiction, poetry and writing for stage and screen.
