The Writing Program at Tufts University offers the opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors to experience a college-level class for credit or no credit, explore their interests in writing and journalism, and prepare themselves for their futures in undergraduate study.
The Tufts Summer Writing Program provides a distinctive forum for your writerly endeavors. Using texts and film, you'll learn to navigate the relationship between writer and reader, and develop critical literary skills. With in-class free-writing exercises, informal sketches, drafts, and revisions, you will write three papers that build on a specific theme. Professor Jason Clemence will provide you with regular evaluation of your skills and development as a writer. Guest speakers will challenge you to push your writing in new directions and will show you how good writing is useful in whatever major you choose in college or job you take in life. Your final project will be a writing portfolio that stands as a testament to your growing literary skills.
