Rhodes College Summer Writing Institute

An Academic Program for Motivated High School Students

The Summer Writing Institute at Rhodes College takes place annually during the last two weeks of June and is an intensive residential academic program committed to developing the critical thinking and writing skills of ambitious high school students. Within the college′s liberal arts environment, students sharpen their reading and analytical skills and learn strategies for writing creatively and critically through coursework in the humanities and social sciences. At the end of the session, students receive a grade for their work and class participation, earn two college credits, transferable to any college or university, and will have completed a portfolio of college-level writing.

Approach

The goal of the Institute is to offer a structured, diverse, and inspiring writing community where students share their strengths, explore their potential, and develop their work. Sponsored by the Rhodes English department, the Institute emphasizes writing but also engages faculty from many college disciplines to expose students to a variety of subjects. Students choose traditional coursework in either creative or expository writing, and faculty teaching both types of courses emphasize the entire writing process from the seed of an idea to the completion of a story, poem, or essay. Through class discussions and peer workshops, each professor guides students in understanding others′ writing and in creating their own writing-expressing ideas, finding a voice, discovering a style, building a structure, and developing a theme or position.
