There are times when it may not be possible for your class to visit us, or maybe you have a whole classroom of students who you want to immerse in the writer’s world. Our writers and artists can come to you for an In School Residency.
Residencies provide the opportunity to work with us for an extended period–usually twelve sessions–on an intensive writing curriculum built around our yearly theme or a subject your classroom or school is exploring. We typically run eight to ten residencies each year in area schools. In these sessions, students work extensively with writing mentors and have their original writing published in a 6x9 inch, professional grade chapbook that is unveiled at a community celebration at your school.
To explore options for a residency at your school, please contact our Program Director, Nick Schuller.
