Donaldson Writer in Residence Program

Visiting writers expand the creative writing learning opportunity by adding a fresh perspective and new techniques to the educational experience. Almost every year the English Department invites a creative writer to work with our undergraduate students in advanced writing seminars.

The Writer in Residence Program is supported by an endowment established by William and Mary professor emeritus Scott Donaldson and his wife Vivian. The program is funded every fourth year by the Class of 1939 Artist in Residence endowment and has received additional funding from the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
