Our flagship three-week multi-genre writing program in the beautiful Berkshires.

We offer a number of shorter, virtual workshop experiences.

Have you been dragging your feet to write your Common App essay? Do you just need a bit of motivation and help? This virtual workshop will help you start, revise, and work through writing your college essay — without frustration. Workshop leaders and fellow participants will provide feedback.
Nervous about what it means to write an essay in college? Perhaps you’ve taken a gap year and have forgotten what it means to write an essay? This virtual workshop teaches you to assess your assignments, break down the process of writing, and tackle the work effectively.
