Artists & Their Regions - 2010 Archive

Artists & Their Regions (formerly Writers and Their Regions) is the CCW's signature course. It features seminar-style class meetings and a week-long artists' retreat that gives students and faculty time to focus on their creative projects. 

The course is offered each Spring to upperclassmen dedicated to honing their craft and developing a specific creative project over the semester.
