BCSR Summer Programs

Young Writers Workshop

www.simons-rock.edu/young_writers
The Young Writers Workshop was established at Simon's Rock in 1983 and is a member of the National Writing and Thinking Network, the largest group of summer writing programs in the country.  Each year 70-80 students are selected to participate.  Unlike conventional workshops in creative or expository writing, Simon’s Rock’s focuses on using informal, playful expressive writing as a way to strengthen skills of language and thinking.  The subjects range from stories and poems the group has read, to personal experience, natural phenomena, and works of art.  Out of this informal writing, using techniques of peer response, students develop more polished pieces, from poems and stories to interpretive essays.  Classes are small and emphasize an atmosphere of trust and collaboration.  Emphasis is given to discovering one's personal voice as a writer.  Former students have gone on to enroll in such colleges as Amherst, Bard, Harvard, Haverford, Princeton, Simon’s Rock, Smith, Williams, and Yale.  During the three weeks students have the opportunity to attend plays, concerts, and other cultural activities that are part of summer life in the Berkshires
