Welcome high school creative writers!

On-campus Creative Writing Day:

The registration deadline for Creative Writing Day 2022 has passed. Keep an eye out for information about Creative Writing Day 2023!

For nearly thirty years, Susquehanna University’s Writers Institute has invited high school writers to campus for Creative Writing Day — a series of readings, workshops and information about our creative writing program. This event offers intensive workshops that give high school students the experience of being part of a community of dedicated writers.

Register as an individual or teacher. Individuals must be in attendance with a parent/guardian. Teachers may bring a class of 8 students maximum. Both registrant options will participate in our full day of programming from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 21.

Students attending this year’s Creative Writing Day will participate in intimate, college-style workshops, receiving personalized feedback on their writing.
