That’s the way residencies work. You’re surrounded for a brief time, and you’re lifted into places you didn’t expect.
It’s been a while since I was at a residency in person, and teaching at Solstice MFA reminded me what I love about these residencies when they’re irl. They’re more than classes. They’re more than readings. They’re more than workshop. So much happens in the interstices.
Surviving in the current landscape of higher ed isn’t always easy, but my MFA program has a huge and exciting announcement.
