I have never met so many talented people and
made such strong friendships. If I could live here, I would.

It is revolutionary to be able to talk to people who understand you and your passions.

The Juniper Institute for Young Writers is an extraordinary nine-day creative writing program for students who are finishing their sophomore, junior, or senior years of high school. Hosted by the University of Massachusetts MFA Program for Poets and Writers, the
Institute offers participants a unique opportunity: intensive workshops in fiction and poetry, craft sessions and studio courses designed especially for young writers, as well as unparalleled exposure to world-renowned authors through readings and Q&As with its companion program for adults.





Juniper has given me so much drive to explore new ways of writing. I'm in love with this place.
