There is a myth that writing is a solitary endeavor. While it's true that no one but the author can put words to paper, writing is certainly not a solitary practice, especially for students in creative writing workshops at some of the most prestigious writing programs in the U. There, writers work with other students and professors to hone their creative works through intensive writing workshops. Over the past few decades, these programs have produced some of America's best-known and best-loved authors, and continue to train the next generation of American literary figures.

Lighthouse's Young Writers Workshops are designed to foster creativity, self-expression, and excitement about writing. There are no grades here, just the stories. Lighthouse connects kids and teens to words, new friends, and a writing community. We offer workshops in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, playwriting, screenwriting, and many other genres and topics. Our classes are taught by published authors and are designed to foster creativity, self-expression, and excitement about writing.
All in-person workshops will be capped at 8 students max in order to maintain safe social distancing. Students will be asked to wear masks at all times and follow regular hand-washing practices. This workshop will take place at the Griffin School in Hyde Park. We expect to add more in-person options soon, so check back for updates!
A good creative writing camp is often offered in conjunction with other arts such as theater, dance and so on. Summer writing camps are usually geared toward slightly older children, usually those who are in their teens. The curriculum typically involves work on the fundamentals of writing such as style and grammar, as well as focusing on the various types of fiction such as poetry, screen writing, fiction, nonfiction and even science fiction. Some camps may include workshops on playwriting, journalism and other specialized forms of writing.
