Reconnect with your Spalding family each year at Homecoming!

Homecoming takes place both virtually and in person at Spring residency, usually over two days in late May/early June. Opportunities await no matter where you are in the world.

Hosted by the Spalding MFA Alumni Association, Homecoming offers an abundance of alumni-led programming, including lectures, readings, literary chats, writing sprints, generative sessions, and social events. A special Alumni Celebration of New Works includes a reading and book signing for alumni who’ve published books or produced scripts in the past year.

Thanks to the generosity of alumni donors and the Naslund-Mann Graduate School of Writing, registration is free for all participants. Keep an eye on your inbox each winter for a call for proposals for Homecoming presentations.
