The Summer Writing Program is a four-week-long convocation of students, poets, fiction writers, scholars, translators, performance artists, activists, Buddhist teachers, musicians, printers, editors and others working in small press publishing. Programming includes workshops, lectures, panels, readings, special events, and more.
In dialogue with renowned practitioners, students engage in the composition of poetry, prose fiction, cross-genre possibilities, inter-arts, translation and writing for performance. Participants work in daily contact with some of the most accomplished and notoriously provocative writers of our time, meeting individually and in small groups, so that both beginning and experienced writers find equal challenge in the program.
-Naropa Students may also take the SWP for credit. Naropa University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Contact the SWP for more information on becoming a Non-Naropa degree seeking credit student. Consider carefully whether you need undergraduate or graduate credit. Keep in mind that SWP weeks taken for undergraduate credit cannot be later converted to graduate credit, and visa versa.
