So how many genres can you list? How many genres have you experimented with? Why not join us in exploring a myriad of literary genres? In this summer workshop we will try our hands at a travel log, an award acceptance speech, an editorial, a film review, a short story, a poem, a phase autobiography, a short play, or perhaps an illustrated children's book. If you like writing, and even if you do not, this camp is for you because it will definitely help you to become a better, more confident writer.
The cost for residential students is $500. It covers program fee and materials, housing, and meal plan.
The cost for commuter students is $350. It covers program fee, materials and lunch.
Residential students accepted to the program will be housed with the Summer College for High School Students in the Residential College South. Adult staff as well as selected student counselors who serve as mentors to the participants will supervise them.
Due to their age, Creative Writing Camp students are not allowed access to the Student Health Center on campus. Students requiring non-emergency medical care between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. will be transported to an urgent care facility with parent’s approval. There is no after-hours medical clinic in Oxford, so students requiring medical care after 7 p.m. and before 9 a.m. are transported to the emergency room at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi with parent’s approval.
Commuters must be dropped off at the designated spot each morning by 8:00 a.m. and picked up at the designated spot by 4:45 p.m. each afternoon.* Commuters will eat lunch on campus each day and lunch is included in the total cost.

Online Registration Step-By-Step
We value the safety and well-being of all our participating students. In case emergency medical attention is required, ALL Pre-College Program camps require parents to submit medical forms on behalf of the student. Please DO NOT forget to return this form to the Pre-College Programs office as this will hold up the registration process for your student. If you have already submitted the medical form to the Office of Pre-College Programs for a camp this summer, you will not have to submit it again.
Please do not email medical forms to our office. We request that you mail, fax, or bring the forms to our office. Thanks!
Registrations may be cancelled up to two weeks prior to the selected week for an 80% refund. Refunds are not available if cancellation occurs less than two weeks prior to the selected week.
