Course Description

This summer, choose from a list of writing courses that reads like an adventure novel: Myth, Magic, Monsters: Making a World; Paper Cuts, Words that Wound and Win; and Dark Fiction: Living on the Edge. And this is just a sampling of the dozens of courses to choose from! In the Young Writers’ Program for Middle and High School, you’ll spend two weeks meeting fellow writers, honing your craft, exploring new genres, and experiencing a writing community like no other. You’ll put plenty of words on the page, yes, but you may also find yourself acting out the lives and situations of fictional characters, rapping and performing poetry and song, or developing an ear for dialogue by listening in on conversations on Durham’s Ninth Street. Our most beloved program to date, the Young Writers’ Program holds all the magic of a true “summer camp” experience. You’ll go home with a full notebook, a full heart, and new confidence in your skill as a writer.
