The Program:
Alfred University welcomes high school students to our beautiful campus each year to take part in this popular co-ed, overnight summer camp. The emphasis is on having fun and enjoying our beautiful natural surroundings while learning. With our dynamic, engaging, talented and caring faculty and staff, terrific facilities, and lovely surroundings, the Alfred University Creative Writing Camp could make this your best summer ever!

  • This program provides an introduction to a variety of genres: poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, and drama.
  • In morning and afternoon sessions, students participate in writing intensive exercises designed to address the elements of craft: voice, character, image, scene, and setting.
  • Students will have an opportunity to participate in workshop sessions in which they will read and discuss each other’s work with an eye towards revision.
  • Students will also read and discuss the work of established authors, investigating the strategies they use to craft their poetry and prose. Discussions are lively, and students will have an opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty.

Who Can Attend? 
This dynamic camp is for students entering grades 10-12 who love to write and want to learn new ways to improve their writing skills with others who share their passion!
