Writer's Village: A Creative Writing Intensive




This summer, become immersed in the craft of creative writing.

Students will participate in a fiction workshop and a poetry workshop led by members and guests of Sarah Lawrence’s celebrated writing faculty. Readings, craft talks, and free writing periods are also part of the program and are designed to supplement learning in the classroom. Students work together alongside their instructors to improve each other’s writing and explore their passions. Together, students produce an anthology of all pieces finalized while in the program and create a focused community that will last into the future.

Students are asked to submit a five-page manuscript and is used for placement only and is not used as a consideration for enrollment. Students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

We welcome students entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades the following fall. Commuter students must be age 14 or older at the start of the program. Residential students must be age 15 or older at the start of the program. This program is well-suited for both the seasoned writer and the beginner.

Full details on the 2019 program will be posted to this site by early November, 2018. Check back soon!
