Summer Residency

2024 Summer residency Dates: July 28 – August 4

Each summer, our students, mentors, and a host of visitors come together for a dynamic residency that includes craft talks, workshops, readings, panels on publishing, and more. Many of our activities will take place right at the Hyatt, but we’ll be sure to visit campus as well!

Hyatt Regency in Bloomington MN

Past visiting writers have included Peter Geye (fiction), Jean Prokott (poetry), winner of the 2021 Howling Bird Book Prize, Michael Kleber-Diggs (poetry), TyLie Shider (playwriting), and Thomas Lemmer (screenwriting), among others. This year’s slate of visitors will be posted as soon as it is available.
