Summer Workshops for High School Students

Summer Workshops for High School Students

With generous support from the Bingham Trust, the Bard Institute for Writing and Thinking established the National Writing and Thinking Network in 1986 to provide imaginative, stimulating, and enjoyable summer writing programs for high school students. The Network’s summer workshops are modeled on the innovative three-week Workshop in Language and Thinking that Bard College requires of all entering students.

Offered at three college-based sites in June and July, the summer workshops are intended for intellectually curious and motivated high school students in grades 9 through 12 who like to write and want to develop greater fluency and confidence in their writing. These two- and three-week workshops offer students the opportunity to work in a range of fiction and nonfiction forms, including poems, narratives, and essays, and to strengthen their writing and thinking skills.
