Bard College at Simon's Rock Young Writers Workshop



The Young Writers Workshop is part of the National Writing and Thinking Network, the largest consortium of summer writing programs in the country. Unlike conventional workshops in creative or expository writing, Simon's Rock's program focuses on using informal, playful expressive writing as a way to strengthen skills of language and thinking. Subject matter ranges from stories and poems to personal experiences, natural phenomena and works of art. More polished pieces—such as personal narratives, stories, poems and exploratory essays—arise from the informal writing activities.
