Emerging Writers Institute - 7th - 9th Grade

Education Unlimited - Emerging Writers Institute - 7th - 9th Grade

Emerging Writers Institute is a unique opportunity for rising 7th - 9th graders to explore creative writing.

From day one, students are challenged through small group seminars focused on fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. In these seminars, and at daily writing workshops, students investigate the fundamentals of storytelling and discover how to read like writers. Diverse afternoon electives may include sci-fi writing, screenwriting, graphic novels, and travel writing and are used to let students try out new genres in a safe, exploratory environment. 

Scheduled writing time and one-on-one instructor evaluations help students develop good writing habits that will serve them year round. Students will also get inspired by off-campus instructor-led activities designed to introduce them to the literary culture of Berkeley or Los Angeles. By the end of the week, students will share polished pieces for publication in their own literary magazine and present their work in an informal reading for family and friends.
