Summer Residency

Each summer, students and faculty in Spalding’s School of Creative and Professional Writing travel to a different location abroad, where we tailor our rich residency to include the literary and cultural highlights of our locale.

Summer residencies begin in late June or July and are paired with an extended independent study that ends in March. We’ve studied in Rome, London, Kyoto, Buenos Aires and many other locales. This video tells the story of our summer 2015 residency in Greece.

Upcoming destination

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Summer 2020 residency in Paris has been canceled. Instead, we will travel to Paris in Summer 2021. Please check back here for details.

What’s the deadline to apply?

February 1 is the application deadline for admission to the MFA program, MAW program, and certificate program for the Summer 2021 semester. Late applications will be considered, but students applying late may be wait-listed.
