Haiku, short story, memoir, magnum opus – it all starts with the written word. Whatever your plot, genre or rhyme, develop and refine the elements of your style in summer workshops led by actively published writers. As the world starves for written content, learn how to get your word out on the street.
The new Summer Institute Creative Writing program is an intensive, dynamic three-week program for motivated high school students who love to write and read. Taught in an informal workshop-style setting, each week of the program is devoted to a different genre – Fiction, Poetry or Creative Nonfiction – taught by actively publishing writers in the field. Through diverse readings and writing exercises, you will be introduced to a variety of craft elements, generate a portfolio of original material and learn to discuss one another's writing usefully, identifying areas of strength and strategies for revision.
WE INVITE YOU TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK at this program, read about our exciting faculty and curriculum, and learn more about what you can achieve in the Pre-College Creative Writing program this summer.
