Creative Writing Microcredential

This micro-credential allows enrichment seekers not currently enrolled in Saint Leo’s Creative Writing MA to participate in the program’s annual week-long Summer Residency alongside graduate students with a focus on personal development. The residency is an immersive and community-oriented retreat with daily morning workshops, afternoon craft talks led by distinguished visiting writers, and opportunities to share writing-in-progress.
