We're so glad for your interest in creative writing at NYU this summer. The Creating Writing Program offers introductory and intermediate writing workshops throughout the summer. All summer programs and courses will be offered again in person, and we couldn't be happier that we'll get to meet you face to face. These workshops offer an exciting exploration of aspects of literary genre, with in-class writing, take-home reading and writing assignments, and substantive discussions of craft. Students will receive feedback from their instructor and their fellow writers, and should be prepared to offer their classmates responses to their work. Three-hour class sessions will allow for personalized attention and an immersive experience.
Join us this summer and grow your skills in fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction! Please direct all inquiries to email@example.com.
Our summer writing workshops are open to NYU and visiting students, and are held in various locations on NYU's Greenwich Village campus. NYU students may register for the summer term via Albert starting in Spring 2023. NYU students will earn 4 credits toward the Creative Writing Minor.
Visiting students should refer to the Summer in NYC website for registration information and instructions. High school students should consult the NYU Precollege website to learn more about our precollege offerings.
