Goucher College Young Writers’ Camp

A one-week creative writing and college essay workshop for high school students who love to write!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Goucher College Young Writers’ Camp will be run virtually this year. We trust you’ll understand this decision as your health and safety are of the utmost concern to us. Please see details below.


Monday, July 6 – Friday, July 10, 2020, 9 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Students in the Young Writers' Camp will:

  • participate in an intensive personal essay writing workshop as they prepare their college essays;
  • Study various genres of creative writing with published authors;
  • Virtually explore Goucher campus and college life;
  • receive feedback on their writing from peers and instructors; and
  • create an anthology of student writing.

Our schedule will include a balance of live online instruction, peer collaboration, and writing projects to be accomplished at the student’s own speed.
