Writing Workshop

Note: This workshop requires a two-block commitment—either 2 & 3, 3 & 4, or 5 & 6.

This three-week workshop focuses on the development of personal creativity, critical thinking, and independent analysis through the reading and writing of both fiction and nonfiction.

Students try their hand at a variety of creative and academic genres, read and discuss model texts for inspiration, and form a community of supportive, working writers.

During the program, students gain confidence by learning techniques for brainstorming and planning, writing at the sentence level, revision, and editing.

Students receive frequent feedback and individual instruction and come away with an understanding of the writing process and how it works best for them.

Each student's final portfolio includes a sampling of their best writing from the course in a variety of genres. Readings include short stories, essays, poems, and journalism.
