Program Overview

The Writing Institute helps individuals grow as writers, regardless of their current skill level or experience. Classes are small—no larger than 12 students—and use workshops to build a collegial community of writers. Through interaction with skilled faculty and students, participants become better thinkers, listeners, and writers.

Writing Institute workshops give students an opportunity to present work for critique and offer constructive critiques of fellow students’ work. Instructors help guide these discussions in a nurturing and noncompetitive atmosphere.
