Summer programs give young writers the attention and guidance they need.

Led by practicing, published writers, students spend time creating fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction—all in a constructive, supportive atmosphere. Students write and read every day and gain a new appreciation for what it is to not only write, but write well.
