Summer Programs for Students

Each summer the UCLA Writing Project offers writing workshops designed to enhance students’ growth as writers.

This summer we are offering Young Writers for students entering grades 5-6, Writing in the Middle for students entering grades 7-8, and College Ready Writers for high school students entering 9-12.  The third workshop, for entering 12th graders only, focuses on writing the college application essay.
