Hey all you lovely, talented writers!

Enhance your creative writing skills, meet YOUR kind of people, and basically take over the world this summer at the Juniper Summer Writing Institute: “Hosted by the MFA Program for Poets & Writers at UMass Amherst, Juniper offers writers an opportunity to immerse themselves in the writer’s life, to get inspired, and to meet a diverse community of acclaimed and emerging writers from all walks of life. Here, writers generate new work and present that work, or other work-in-progress, to their assigned faculty workshop leaders and peers. Workshop sizes are kept small so that every writer’s work gets dedicated attention. “ Application requirements:

  • $30 application fee
  • Writing sample (5-7 pages of poetry with one poem per page OR 7-9 pages of fiction or creative nonfiction/memoir, double spaced)
  • Indication of your first and second choices for workshop leader
  • Personal Statement (if applying for funding, scholarships available here)
  • Bring your application by the Writers’ Room Monday through Thursday for proofreading, if you so choose.
Apply! Here! NOW! (Have we ever led you astray?)
