Creative Writing Summer Programs

Combining a love of words and a love of nature, Interlochen offers an intensive, supportive and enthusiastic student writing curriculum in the pristine surroundings of Michigan's north woods.

This program provides students with a three-week immersion in the world of writing. Guided writing assignments, reading assignments, visiting guest writers, discussion and critique are part of the regular curriculum. Students will work under the apprenticeship of professional writers and teachers on an individual basis.

The creative writing department is centrally located on Interlochen's scenic campus, in The Writing House, a sunny, comfortable building uniquely designed for the study and practice of writing. View 360-degree tour
