Summer Creative Writing Workshop for High School Students

High school students with dreams of becoming world-renowned authors will have the chance to bring those dreams a little closer to reality with the Savage Mountain Creative Writing Workshop. Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing will host its annual Savage Mountain Creative Writing Workshop beginning on Sunday, June 24, and ending on Saturday, June 30. The cost for commuter students is $300, and for students who wish to reside on campus, the cost is $550.

Students will get the experience with literature and language beyond an average high school’s goals and requirements. They will have the opportunity to learn about the production of polished poems, stories and essays; publication online; and the chance to study with respected and published contemporary poets, writers of fiction and essayists.

This year the workshop will feature FSU faculty member and writer of fiction Gerry LaFemina, author of the short story collection “Wish List,” and poet Jennifer Merrifield, author of “American Proper.” Friends and family are invited to attend a student reading and reception on Saturday, June 30.
