Join us each summer for a month-long program of study in Creative Writing, Film, Theatre, Literature, Journalism, and Publishing. Interact with faculty, students, and guests from a variety of artistic disciplines—your work and your life will never be the same. Our collaborative environment allows participants to completely immerse themselves in the culture and lush surroundings of “The Emerald Isle.” Opportunities abound to explore sites both charming and historic through scheduled excursions and independent travel.
Our unique poetry program is directly affiliated with the Ezra Pound Center for Literature at Brunnenburg Castle in Dorf Tirol, Italy. Courses are taught by Dr. John Gery of the University of New Orleans, with consultation from Mary de Rachewiltz, Pound’s daughter and author of the memoir "Ezra Pound, Father and Teacher". An intimate group of students live and write together on the stately grounds of Brunnenburg Castle, surrounded by a working vineyard and breathtaking views of the Italian Alps.
