The program offers partial funding and full funding on a competitive basis. The program offers teaching, publishing, and editorial assistantships, as well as fellowships, scholarships, and tuition waivers.
The program brings three to four writers and editors to campus each year through its month-long visiting writers and editors series. The program also hosts Writers Week, an annual event offering readings, workshops, craft talks, and panel discussions. Other features include a publishing and editing curriculum within the Publishing Laboratory, which hosts the Lookout Books imprint; and opportunities to participate in three outreach programs at local schools and organizations and with regional teens.
