Summer 2016 Precollege Programs in the Arts:
Creative Writing Institute

Grades 9–12

Creative Writing Institute

Typical Day
Location: To be announced

Interested in creative writing? Create original work in various genres: fiction, poetry, playwriting, memoir, and essay. Guided by accomplished, experienced instructors who foster a supportive atmosphere of productivity and fun, the workshop-style format allows you to share your work and encourages discussions of writing technique and craft, including voice, character, tone, plot, and point of view. Produce polished pieces that can be used for college essays and/or award submissions. The program culminates in a reading to which friends and family are invited and publication in the institute’s online literary journal.

To broaden exposure to the arts, the Creative Writing Institute can be combined with 3-D Video Game and Makers Lab Creations (new!), Architecture Intensive, Neu Curators (new!), or the Songwriting Workshop to make for a well-rounded summer experience.

July 11–August 5
Monday–Friday, 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
$2,200 for the first registration
$1,980 for the second registration in the family, Purchase College employees and alumni, and early registrations (received by May 6, 2016)
