A Residential Summer Creative Writing Program
For Talented High School Students
June 23–July 6, 2019
The 2019 Workshop is full and we are no longer accepting applications.
Fir Acres Writing Workshop is open to rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders, so we encourage students who will be in that range next year to look for application instructions in late 2019.
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.
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.
