THE NYU SUMMER WRITING INTENSIVE, LINKED HERE, WILL BE HELD THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF WRITERS IN FLORENCE. ALL STUDENTS IN THE SUMMER WRITING INTENSIVE WILL RECEIVE A 33% TUITION DISCOUNT.
Thank you for your interest in writing at NYU. All summer programs will now be held remotely, and we’re pleased to be offering Writers in New York/Writers in Florence/Writers in Paris together in a virtual format as the online "NYU Summer Writing Intensive." This dynamic and robust program will offer 8 credits in 4 weeks and feature NYU’s world-class faculty and a stellar line-up of visiting writers and editors.
The program dates and class schedule remain the same: students may choose between enrolling in Session I (June 1–June 25) or Session II (June 29-July 23). Students will take a Writing Workshop and a Craft Seminar in fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction. Courses are small, to allow for personalized attention and an immersive experience. Your professors will offer ample time each week for one-on-one meetings to discuss student work.
Evening colloquia will include an exciting array of virtual events, including readings with renowned authors, publishing panels, conversations between writers about their craft, and more. Most events will include question and answer sessions, allowing students direct contact with some of the finest writers and editors working today. Evening colloquia will also include one-on-one consultations with authors, editors, and other publishing professionals to give students feedback on written work as well as literary career advice.
Although we regret not being able to meet you in person, the remote platform has some significant benefits: an increase in one-on-one contact with faculty and visiting authors and editors; a star-studded event lineup (since location is not an issue for our presenters); and the opportunity to focus on writing during this otherwise unsettling time. NYU students enrolled in the program will have the opportunity to complete half of the Creative Writing Minor in 4 weeks.
Detailed information regarding tuition and application deadlines is forthcoming and will be posted as soon as possible. In the meantime, we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to having you join us this summer!
