At the Summer Residential Program, you will choose a single core course—Poetry, Fiction, Creative Writing, Playwriting, or TV writing—as your focus for the two weeks of the program.

We offer asynchronous 6-week online creative writing courses for high school students every winter and summer. You can study creative writing with us your own schedule, from anywhere in the world!
