Students spend eleven intense days in January in Pittsburgh, a city known for its writers, and eleven days in June in Carlow, Ireland, a region famous as the birthplace and home of internationally known novelists and poets. During the rest of the year, students submit their individual writing and reading assignments to their selected American and Irish mentors for critique.
The program is intended for students who aspire to be professional writers, to teach creative writing on the college level, or to enjoy the satisfaction of writing and reading in an individualized program.
