Summer Programs
Summer Writing Workshop
This intensive 5-day, 15-hour writing course in personal essay will help high school students to develop ways of formally expressing themselves in the first-person, narrative voice. We will use the professional writers’ workshop format to explore creative and stimulating writing prompts and effective strategies for organizing ideas and narratives. We will also emphasize public reading and critique as integral to the revision process. This 1-week course is perfect for students who are looking to improve their writing skills in any way, or are trying to achieve strong prose in essays of 750 words or less, all under the framework of Waring School's time-tested writing program, its pedagogy and its teachers.
​​​This course has helped me to learn what a good essay is, and how to write one.​
