Students attend two nine- or ten-day residencies each year, in January and July, and one final residency at the end of the program. The residencies are all held on the West Virginia Wesleyan campus in Buckhannon, West Virginia; students can substitute one campus residency with travel to Dublin, Ireland. The program, which is focused on place-based writing, hosts a reading series.
Submit application materials with a $50 application fee by October 1 for the January residency, or by April 1, 2016, for the July residency. Admissions are made on a rolling basis.
