Writing Summer Programs
There are many reasons a middle or high school student will benefit from a summer writing program. Most practically, improving writing skills can mean higher ACT and SAT scores, better grades and a greater chance at college admission. Writing programs also unleash creativity in students that can ease stress and guide students toward future fulfillment and professional success. Sharp writing skills translate into enhanced performance in countless fields, from law and medicine to business management and hospitality. As distribution of the written word evolves and fragments with the expansion of the Internet, having a fundamental understanding of how to write to inform and persuade has never been more important. College faculty and expert writing instructors guide students through credit and non-credit summer programs. They offer writing workshops, peer feedback and thesis projects. Students can delve into categories such as poetry, fiction, non-fiction, playwriting, songwriting and technical writing.
