Summer Residency

July 23 – August 1, 2021

Each summer, our students, mentors, and a host of visitors come together for a ten-day residency that includes craft talks, workshops, readings, panels on publishing, and more. This year, owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the residency will be held online, with its workshops and live events delivered via Zoom between July 23 and August 1. The 2022 residency is scheduled to take place at theĀ Hyatt Regency, in Bloomington, from July 14 to July 24, 2022.
