Fir Acres Writing Workshop

A Premier Residential Summer Creative Writing Program
f
or Talented High School Students

June 23-July 6, 2024

Fir Acres Writing Workshop is open to rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. Summer 2024 will be our 36th Year!

General Application Deadline: Deadline has now passed. Thanks for applying!

 

At Fir Acres Writing Workshop, sixty high school students from across the country come together for two weeks to write and join a community of writers on the beautiful, wooded campus of Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

In daily Workshops, participants study great writing and produce their own under the guidance of dynamic, thoughtful, published faculty. At night, participants gather to socialize, meet and hear from distinguished visiting writers, and work on their own poetry, fiction, and creative prose.

Our mission is to provide a high-caliber, pre-collegiate, creative educational experience to bright, inventive, and passionate high school students. Our program appeals to young writers and artistic students who are drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the fun, hip mystique of Portland.
