The Creative Writing Workshop-- Low Residency (CWL) program offers flexible opportunities for students who have already begun their careers and need a schedule that accommodates their work schedule, who travel widely or live abroad, or who simply prefer the flexibility of a low-residency program.
UNO's innovative Low Residency MFA in Creative Writing was the first low residency MFA program to combine distance learning with study abroad. Since 1973, when our Division of International Education was founded, almost 10,000 students have participated in our study-abroad programs in Europe, Africa, and Asia. And over the past decade more than a thousand writers have participated in our workshops and literature classes abroad.
This comes as no surprise with faculty and guests like Fredrick Barton, Joseph Boyden, Amanda Boyden, Steven Church, Moira Crone, Alex Espinoza, John Gery, Lee Gutkind, Peter Gizzi, Jim Grimsley, Kristen Iversen, Rodger Kamenetz, Hank Lazer, Deborah Meadows, Dinty W. Moore, Christine Pountney, Michael Winter, John Gery, Kay Murphy, Susan Schultz -- just to mention a few of the past and future faculty and guests in the Edinburgh, Cork, or Brunnenburg summer programs.
