Program Information

The Summer Writing Program emphasizes a writing process approach, teaching participants how to compose academic papers similar to those that are expected in college.  The program is designed for rising juniors and seniors with strong reading and writing abilities.

The Summer Summer Writing Program is a full residential college experience.  At SWP, you can experience what it means to be completely absorbed in the learning process at a nationally ranked liberal arts college.  Your classes feature hands-on experiences and group work to broaden your learning experiences.  You'll live with a roommate in a Carleton residence hall, attend class, and study like a college student while learning to balance your academic responsibilities with a variety of social and co-curricular activities.
