PCC’s Writer in Residence Program aims to enrich the cultural environment of the College and the larger community by bringing to campus for a period of three days a distinguished local writer to interact with students, faculty, staff, and community members.  
Writer in Residence events include classroom visits, writing workshops, a faculty luncheon, and a public reading.  Writers in Residence are interviewed by editors of PCC’s literary magazine Inscape, the interview to be published in the magazine.  The residency also offers our visiting writer a wonderful opportunity to promote a recent publication.

The Writer in Residence Program is funded by the Pasadena Festival of Women Authors and by several groups on campus, including the Office of Student Affairs and the English Department.
