emersonWRITES offers free Creative Writing Courses to Boston Public High School students. Courses are taught by graduate students trained in Emerson College’s First-Year Writing Program. Students are offered courses in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, as well as multi-genre and multi-language courses. Courses are held on Saturdays from 10am-12pm, followed by an open-mic free lunch from 12-1, beginning Oct. 17 and ending December 12. Through the program, students can also participate in a publication workshop, attend plays and other campus events, and have access to college-preparation classes and discussions. Course work culminates in a final showcase event with a published guest author where students launch their anthology of finished work. Click here for registration! We look forward to writing with you!
