    The LSWW is an intensive three week writing and arts workshop for 80-100 Lawrence middle and high school public school students. The workshop, founded in 1988, runs in July on the Phillips Academy campus. Students who return for multiple summers can develop as Writing Leaders in the program and become paid employees.

    At Andover Bread Loaf's writing workshop, students transform blank pages into life, which in turn speaks to themselves and each other as a community. The momentum builds as they hear their own voices and the voices of their peers. They come to recognize the power of their words.  

    ABL Writing Workshop for Educators:

    An intensive graduate-level professional development program founded in 1987, the Andover Bread Loaf (ABL) Writing Workshop is designed to help activist educators develop their talents as writers, create curricula, and initiate exciting interdisciplinary projects in their classrooms, schools, and communities. The award-winning workshop is a collaboration between Middlebury Colleges Bread Loaf School of English graduate school and Phillips Academy, a private secondary school.
