Writing by the Lake

 Writing Seminars for Adults in the Community

Learn essential techniques and experiment with new forms in the comfortable setting of Glen Rowan House at Lake Forest College.

You’ll connect with other writers from the community, and our outstanding faculty will provide individual advice and mentorship for your work. Whether you are a novice or a pro, Writing by the Lake will let you get to the next level.

Taught by award-winning authors, each seminar consists of four two-hour sessions and ends with an individual evaluation and “Next Steps” conference. Your “Next Steps” conference will provide one-on-one time with your Writing by the Lake faculty member to discuss where to take your writing next.
