The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Field Trips

Field Trips offer Juniper participants the opportunity to explore beyond the UMass Amherst campus and creatively engage with the surrounding nature and literary culture of Western Mass. Field trips are guided by Juniper Creative Writing Instructors, and encourage participants to write alongside and pull inspiration from the many engaging sites Amherst and surrounding towns have to offer. This year, participants in the Juniper Institute for Young Writers will take one Craft Session elective on Wednesday morning and then embark on a field trip to a Western Massachusetts destination with their Craft Session Creative Writing Instructor.

Craft Session Field Trips are offered during the Juniper Institute for Young Writers.
