Writing and Thinking Workshop

Join a creative community of writers who share a commitment to the work and fun of writing together in our residential summer program for high school students.

Supportive faculty work with students in small groups to help them develop confidence in their voices as writers. Participants learn strategies to generate fresh and compelling ideas, the kind of well-reasoned ideas first-rate colleges and universities expect from their students. Trips to Chicago’s museums and cultural events offer additional inspiration.

You’ll grow in ways that you can now only imagine.
