About

Every summer, the Juniper Institute gathers a community of writers to explore the creative process and develop new approaches to the craft of writing. 

It is an opportunity to practice living with your art at the center of your life; it is a week to imagine with wild invention as you mingle, experiment, and take chances; it is a chance to connect with writers, poets and artists from around the country who value what prose, poetry, word, image, fiction, essay, memoir and autobiography can do.

Now in our 16th year, the Juniper Summer Writing Institute offers a week of intensive writing workshops, craft sessions, Q&As, readings, and manuscript consultation in the beautiful Pioneer Valley.

Applications for the 2019 Institute are closed.
