For non-degree seeking students, we also offer the Cork Writers' Retreat. This program can be attended for either the full or half-session, and is a great opportunity for writers who want to push their work to new levels at their own relaxed pace while surrounded by the beauty of Ireland and the creative energy of our exciting guest artists.
All for-credit students will receive a UNO transcript for their participation. This official transcript will be sent to the appropriate home institution following the completion of the summer program, after a final assessment and payment of room damages and other remaining charges. If you have any questions about the transcript process, please feel free to contact the Writing Workshops Abroad office.
2020 marks our eighth year in Ireland, and we are excited to return to University College Cork during the height of the city's annual Midsummer Festival, one of Ireland’s premier exhibitions of theater, literature, art, and dance. As usual, we'll feature our writing workshops and seminars with exceptional faculty and guests, as well as our famous reading series, and excursions to nearby historic sites, like Dublin and Killarney.
The program cost includes tuition, accommodation, meals on class days, opening and closing receptions, readings and performances by students, faculty, and guest writers, study abroad travel insurance, and more.
