The Summer Writing Program (SWP) will teach you how to compose academic papers similar to those you will write in college. You will participate in a daily morning class full of lively discussion of literature led by a Carleton professor. Then, discussion sections led by current Carleton students will offer you even more individual attention. A writing workshop also meets daily to provide you with opportunities to focus on your own writing process. Application deadline: April 23, 2012. Scholarships are available; the scholarship deadline is March 15, 2012.
