Summer Residency Schedule

Dear WCSU MFA Community,
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer. Attached please find the summer residency schedule and descriptions for each of the panels/seminars/readings. Students should read through the descriptions carefully as some of the presenters list required readings and/or ask you to bring samples of your own work.
As always, our evening events are free and open to the public. Please feel free to share with friends and family.
If you have questions, please let me know. I look forward to seeing you in August!
All the best,
Anthony
