    Literature Summer Programs

    For students who want to purse their passion for literature, pre-college summer programs come in nearly as many varieties as the written word itself. Study madness and creativity through Plato and Poe, dystopia via Orwell and Atwood, or the American novel by way of Morrison and Twain. Often offered as part of comprehensive creative arts education programs in which students are exposed to poetry, theater, philosophy, visual arts, film, dance and other subjects, these sessions bolster students’ writing, reading comprehension and critical analysis skills. Explore language, delve into traditional and contemporary literature, and develop writing abilities for the SAT, college and beyond. Literature summer programs are held at universities and colleges in the United States and abroad, in residential and commuter formats.
