Excellence in Teaching Fellowships


The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN and the Madeline Island School for the Arts (MISA) have partnered to create the Excellence in Teaching Fellowships. This exciting program generates new ideas and transformative writing to improve the craft of writing educators.


    • Loft teachers are nominated by their students and peers. The top three nominees are selected to receive an all-expenses paid, one week retreat on our Island campus in the spring, summer or fall.


    • MISA knows the importance of solitude and an inspirational environment when it comes to your writing. That is why this fellowship program is important.


    • Fellows stay in their own mission cottage, with cozy chairs, a writing desk, Wi-Fi, and will enjoy our delicious Island meals. Inspiration can be found on our idyllic prairie meadow campus, and Madeline Island’s beautiful sandy beaches with breathtaking views of Lake Superior.
