Meredith College Offers Summer Writing Programs

The Meredith College Department of English is offering two programs for writers this summer. One program is for women writers, and the other is a camp for middle school girls.

The 18th annual Focusing on Form Workshop for Women Writers will be held June 23-27, 2014. Each summer since 1997, the Meredith College Department of English has sponsored a writing workshop for women who are writing, who want to write, and who want to try writing. During this one-week workshop, outstanding instructors will guide participants in one of the following forms: poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction or generating material. The workshop offers instruction, critique of manuscripts, and—not the least of its advantages—new friends who share a common interest.

The 7th annual Meredith College Young Writers’ Camp is scheduled for July 14-18, 2014. Rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls are invited to join Meredith faculty, some of whom are published essayists, poets and novelists, for a week of creativity, learning and fun.

Meredith’s five-day Young Writers’ Camp is an opportunity to sharpen your creative writing skills, meet other young writers, and work on independent writing projects throughout the week. In addition to structured class time, there will be opportunities for recreation. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
