Creative Writing at Southampton

Starting in January, high school juniors and seniors will have an opportunity to study creative writing while also obtaining three college credits, as part of the Young Scholars program being offered at Stony Brook  Southampton. The deadline for applications is Jan. 3.

The course will cover creative writing across multiple genres — from fiction to poetry to scriptwriting, with participants reading contemporary works, giving a public reading, and attending regular events alongside accomplished authors.

The Introduction to Creative Writing course will meet on Wednesday evenings, from late January until mid-May. The cost is $250.
