Information about Duke University Youth Programs

Duke CREATIVE WRITERS WORKSHOP
As summer creative writing programs proliferate and high school students
have dramatically more choices than even a few years ago, the Duke Creative Writers Workshop still stands out as a customized campus experience.

Creative Writers Workshop (or CWW, as it’s been known to 20+ years of
writers) has always been the quirkier cousin of Duke Young Writers Camp,
enrolling rising 10th-12th grade students who have already developed the focus and self-discipline to design and execute individual writing projects. Writers spend part of each day in “Primary Groups” with their assigned instructor, a professional writer who leads small group discussions, workshops and mostly one-on-one conferences.

But because the program has limited enrollment and the daily structure is
flexible, each writer can access feedback from every teacher. During the first few days of the two week session, a project plan takes shape: novel revision, new chapters, formal poetry, creative non-fiction, flash fiction, screenplay-- or any collection of disparate forms. Unlike most other creative writing programs, participants are not bound to specific genres or assignments. This is truly a choose-your-own-adventure for ambitious writers, where each summer a supportive, intensely connected community is born.

“DYWC was one of the best experiences of my life. The counselors were truly amazing and the classes were amazing. The camp truly became a crazy, very geeky family by the last night; it’s fairly common to see kids spread out on the dorm floor playing cards, watching and analyzing Doctor Who, and most importantly, giving feedback on each other’s work. If you have a passion for writing, I highly recommend attending. You won’t regret it.
