Overview

The Carleton College Summer Writing Program emphasizes a writing process approach, teaching you how to compose academic papers similar to those you will write in college. The program is designed for college-bound students with strong reading and writing abilities.

At the Carleton College Summer Writing Program, each day begins with a lively discussion of literature in a class led by one of our faculty. You will read both contemporary and traditional literature, from classic texts by writers such as Plato and Shakespeare to a variety of modern short stories, essays, and poems by authors such as August Wilson, Margaret Atwell, James Baldwin, Alice Walker, and Adrienne Rich. This literature then becomes the focus of your papers.

In addition to the morning classes, discussion sections led by current Carleton students offer you even more individual attention. The writing workshop (taught by Professor Deborah Appleman) meets daily to provide you with opportunities to focus on your own writing process. You will write every day. Although we occasionally include creative writing exercises, the focus of the workshop is on expository prose—the kind you will use in college to write academic papers.
