The Bedrosian Center’s Writer in Residence Program is a 4-5 day residency which gives USC Price students and faculty access to the knowledge and advice of real world media experts. The program also provides reporters direct access to Bedrosian Center faculty expertise, research, and education programs.
We will be hosting one high-profile journalist on campus to participate in classroom lectures, events, and one-one meetings with faculty.
