You’re a good writer. But readers - and professors - demand great ones. UArts Summer Institute’s intensive Creative Writing program grants you access to published, practicing instructors who not only expand your range and imagination, but share insights and understanding crucial to the drafting, writing, editing, pitching and publishing processes.
By focusing on one genre per week, develop a strong foundation across creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry and screenwriting. Lessons are complemented by classroom visits from nationally-recognized authors who share personalized tips and tools for unlocking exactly what you’re trying to say. Guided writing prompts drive discussion and critique in a constructive, informal workshop - style setting and equipping you to tell your own unique story. In addition to core courses, you’ll choose one elective, taken across the course of the four week program, that lets you hone in on an area of strength or interest - or branch out into something new. Still looking for your voice, or a chance to discover what life’s really like as a working writer? Find it here.
