Summer Advanced Writers Workshops
2015 Dates: July 5-11
Applications due May 1
The workshop provides some of the nation's most talented high school writers with the opportunity to work in intensive, small-group workshops headed by nationally recognized authors.
- Features workshops in fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry
- Classes limited to 15 students to ensure personal attention and individual conferencing
- Open to experienced writers entering 11th or 12th grade in the fall of 2015
For a week, you'll be completely immersed in the world of creative writing, while living on our beautiful rural Pennsylvania campus with other high school poets and fiction writers.
At night, you'll attend readings by professional authors as well as hold your own readings, accompanied by pizza, in the residence halls.
Faculty will not only help you with your writing, they'll also talk to you about what it means to be a working author—from developing regular work habits, to overcoming writers block, to what it’s like to sign a contract and see your own book appear on shelves.
In recent years, The Princeton Review chose the Susquehanna University Summer Writers Workshop as one of the coolest summer camp activities for American teenagers.
