Hosted by the MFA for Poets & Writers, Juniper is currently accepting applications for the Summer Writing Institute and Juniper Institute for Young Writers. From June 18-26 on the Umass Amherst campus, Juniper brings together writers of all ages, levels, and backgrounds to study the craft of writing with our diverse and accomplished faculty.
This summer, Heather Christle, Emily Pettit, Zachary Schomburg, and Evie Shockley will be leading workshops in poetry. Noy Holland, Mitchell S. Jackson and Joy Williams will lead the fiction workshops. Paul Lisicky will teach a workshop in creative non-fiction and memoir. Writers in Residence will be Chris Dombrowski, Arthur Flowers, Amelia Gray, Eileen Myles, Betsy Wheeler, Dara Wier, and Matthew Zapruder.
For all Umass students, alumni, faculty, partners and children—we offer a $200 discount off tuition. Merit and need-based scholarships are also available, and college credit can be arranged for writers of all ages. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The scholarship deadline is March 15, 2016.
