Creative Writing

Learn to write with voice, choice, and creativity!

We like to say we value crativity but truthfully we fear it--especially in school. In this course, we will read and write in order to study how to be a more effective and creative writer. You'll never go back to the five paragraph essay again!

Sessions Offered

Session 4: July 31 - August 6


On Campus, In Person

This class is meant to be immersive and students will experience:

  • Students will become better writers, more independent, more creative, and more original.
  • Students will choose topics of interest, explore genres of writing, develop their own voice, and write!
