Course Description:

The Tufts Summer Writing Program provides a distinctive forum for your writing endeavors.

With in-class free-writing exercises, informal sketches, drafts, and revisions, you will write three papers that build on a specific theme. The program's instructor will provide you with regular evaluation of your skills and development as a writer. Guest speakers will challenge you to push your writing in new directions and will show you how good writing is useful in whatever major you choose in college or job you take in life. Your final project will be a writing portfolio that stands as a testament to your growing literary skills.
