Summer Intensive in Creative Writing
During the summer, NYU School of Professional Studies Paul McGhee Division students have the opportunity to become a member of an international writers' community in New York City. The two-week Summer Intensive in Creative Writing allows McGhee students to earn four credits towards their degree. Mornings are spent in nationally recognized improvisation workshops taught by NYU School of Professional Studies undergraduate faculty. Afternoons are spent in prose and poetry workshops with distinguished visiting writers. Evenings feature readings and lectures.
Students must apply for admission to the program. A maximum of 12 poets, 12 fiction writers, and 12 nonfiction writers will be chosen to participate. Participants should have some prior course work in poetry or prose. Students may apply on a credit or noncredit basis. Those taking the course for credit will be asked to submit additional written materials later in the summer.
