    Barnard’s Young Women Writers Institute encourages writers to find their voice and share it with the world. 

    Students will spend their mornings learning from Barnard instructors in courses such as The Art of the Essay, Writing New York, and playwriting, on the same campus where writers like Greta Gerwig, Zora Neale Hurson, Jhumpa Lahiri got their start. Afternoons will be spent in intensives focused on developing a writing portfolio, getting published, and careers for writers. Off campus, you will tour the iconic neighborhoods that birthed the Harlem Renaissance and the Beat Generation.
