Still looking for your voice, or a chance to discover what life’s really like as a working writer? Find it here.
You love writing. UArts Summer Institute’s Creative Writing program grants you access to published writing instructors that not only expand your range and imagination, but share insights and understanding crucial to the editing, pitching and publishing process involved with writing.
By focusing on one genre per week, you will develop a strong foundation across creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry and screenwriting. Lectures are complemented by classroom visits from nationally recognized authors who share personal advice for unlocking exactly what you’re trying to say. Guided writing prompts drive discussion and critique in a constructive, informal work-shop-style setting and equip you to tell your own unique story. In addition to core courses, you’ll choose one elective that lets you hone in on an area of strength - or branch out into something new.
