The Washington University Summer Writers Institute is an intensive, two-week program featuring workshops in popular and emerging genres. Adult writers from all levels of experience work together with published authors and exceptional teachers in a supportive, non-competitive format that allows for personalized attention and constructive feedback.
Institutes are held evenings and weekends to accommodate the busy work schedules of participants in the region. Out-of-town participants may choose to reside on campus and make use of our many libraries and quiet, outdoor areas for writing and reflection.
Each institute is worth 3 units of credit; an application is not required.
