High School Program

Our program is thrilled to offer courses for high schoolers in summer 2019! For rising juniors and seniors, Academic Immersion: Creative Writing is a three-week, intensive writing program designed to help young writers hone their craft.

AIM’s Creative Writing track will focus on a single genre each week, immersing students in the practice of writing fiction, poetry, and screenplays. They will learn formal technique in each genre during morning seminars led by instructors who are alumni of our MFA program. In the afternoons, they’ll have the chance to learn by hands-on experience – including writing workshops, free-write sessions on campus and around Boston, visits from guest speakers, and pilgrimages to important cultural institutions throughout the city to see where other Boston writers found their muses. The program concludes with a “writers showcase,” in which students share one of their own pieces with their peers and other members of the BU community.
