The Lamplighter Literary Arts Summer Writing Institute



Northfield Mount Hermon will launch its inaugural Lamplighter Literary Arts Summer Writing Institute for middle and high school students from around the globe (online) in July 2021.

Program director John Corrigan, author of nine novels, has brought together a dynamic faculty consisting of published and award-winning authors and filmmakers from around the world who will offer a unique online program in 2021.

Two-week workshops (July 11-23) –– Character and Conflict (fiction); Telling True Stories (journalism); Stories for the Stage and Screen (play/screenwriting); and Poetry: The Art and Craft; as well as a one-week option, Crime Fiction (July 26-29) –– will be offered for any student writer entering grades 7 through 12. The program has drawn applications from Greece and the Ukraine among other places, to date.

Lamplighter promises to offer a robust and communal experience. Classes will be capped at 15 with two instructors for each. Twenty-five (25) synchronous hours are spread over two weeks to avoid screen fatigue. The unique schedule offers maximum flexibility to accommodate writers from across the globe –– students may choose either a morning or evening section. Each day will also offer an Artist Talk, featuring readings or a discussion led by writers and filmmakers or literary agents.
