We provide instruction in various writing formats including fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and drama. One of the biggest challenges writers face is getting ideas and thoughts down spontaneously. Writing prompts are also used to help spark the flow of expression and speed within specific time frames. We focus on positive and constructive feedback in a fun, provocative, and encouraging environment. 

Classes for students entering grades 9-12 are held on the SLU campus at Morrissey Hall from June 8-25, 6-9 PM Monday-Thursday evenings.

Students may sign up for any combination of classes for two weeks ($300) or for all three weeks ($425) of the writing program.
