About this course
Our faculty are world-class writers and teachers, dedicated to creating an intimate community of writers who support and challenge each other. Our cohorts are closely bonded and carefully chosen. Each year we have three Visiting Writers in Residence, one in each genre, teaching workshop, as well as Visiting Editors who read student manuscripts and give crucial publishing and career advice.
Because we are a small program, the faculty each are able to devote close personal attention to each of our students and their work. And because of our location in the Bay Area, and the way our program is constructed, we are able each year to bring to our program a variety of the best writers, editors, agents, and other active members of the literary community, in order to create the diversity and variety of a larger program without in any way giving up our intimacy and focused mentorship of our students.
