McMullan Writers Workshops

“All serious daring starts from within.” — Eudora Welty

The McMullan Writers Workshops provide promising middle school, high school and adult writers an opportunity to develop as creative writers. Over the course of a week, students hone their craft under the instruction of talented writing instructors and study literature under the guidance of college professors. The high school and middle school workshops are residential, and we look forward to growing the adult workshop into a residential experience soon.
