Welcome high school creative writers!

On-campus Creative Writing Day:

Monday, Nov. 1

Registration for this event is now closed. If you’d like to register, please call 570-372-4660.

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.

Individual writers and families: register for our individual program, which includes a morning group session, lunch, and individualized afternoon workshops. Our individual program runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 1.

Teachers who wish to bring their entire class can register for our morning group session, which runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on November 1. This session includes lunch.

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

As part of our ongoing commitment to our community’s health and safety, we currently require everyone on campus to wear a mask indoors (regardless of vaccination status). At this time, masks are also required outdoors for unvaccinated persons unable to maintain six feet of distance from other persons wearing masks. This is subject to change and we will update you as needed.
