Summer 2019 Opportunities

CofC in Spoleto, Italy


May 15, 2019 - June 12, 2019

Application Deadline: March 1, 2019

The artistic ties the city of Charleston has with the town of Spoleto are of inestimable value, and the purpose of this program is to bring students to our sister city to write and study literature, and to meet with artists and writers living there, so that they may be inspired to continue their education with an even greater sense of the importance of art and of writing. Students and faculty will be staying at a villa compound just outside Spoleto, where we will share meals, hold readings, and spend quiet time writing and reading. One special group dinner each week will feature intensive and lively discussions of the craft of writing. In addition, we will be going on one three-day excursion to Florence, where students will take guided tours of such important artistic and historical sites such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, and the Galleria dell’Academmia; one evening will be spend in salon with an area painter, writer, and historian.
