The Sarah Lawrence College Writer's Workshop for High School Students offers young writers an opportunity to explore the creative process with skilled writers and artists, and to experience the joys of writing in a supportive environment. No previous creative writing experience is necessary—only a commitment to learning, a fascination with words, and a desire to be part of a community that values art and experimentation. Learn more»
Sarah Lawrence College Summer Seminar for Adult Writers
In 2013 we celebrated our 20th year of the Summer Seminar for Adult Writers. Looking back, we've served hundreds of poets and writers by providing them with instruction and interaction during the conference with the best teachers and writers around, from Poet Laureates to Pulitzer Prize winners and more. Many attendees have built friendships with fellow attendees and faculty that continue. Many have gone on to publish. Many have gone on to start writing workshops in their own communities and share their skills with others. But most important, many were inspired, engaged, and challenged to create their personal best.
With 20 years of the conference behind us, we must look ahead, evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our attendees in an even greater way. For that reason, the Summer Seminar for Writers will not take place in summer 2014. We're taking a hiatus—just a break this year—to regroup, evaluate the program, and build on the already strong Seminar we have, so that as the program moves into its third decade it will continue to be at the top of the list—your list—of summer writing programs in the country.
While the weeklong residency program is on hiatus for the summer of 2014, there are still opportunities for writers to stay connected with Sarah Lawrence College. In June 2014, the Center for Continuing Education offers a one day Publish and Promote Your Book workshop. Top industry experts will offer workshops on traditional and self publishing options, how to get the right agent, as well as book promotion and social media strategies. For more information contact the Center for Continuing Education at (914) 395-2205 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence also offers several noncredit summer writing classes. To be added to our e-mail list, please send your name and email to email@example.com with the subject line: Summer Adult Writers 2015.
Thank you for your interest in the Sarah Lawrence College Summer Seminar for Writers. We hope you save the date for summer 2015!
