During a T&W program, students work closely with a professional writer. The T&W writer exposes students to literary work by diverse classic and contemporary authors, teaching students literary elements and methods for expressing their experiences and ideas in writing. Students experiment with a variety of genres and work through every stage of the writer’s process.
