Grades 9–12

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.
