High school students interested in creative writing are invited to the Purchase Area Writing Workshop June 19-24 at Murray State University. Students will work on their own creative writing with MSU professors and working writers.

Residential workshop activities will include film screenings and opportunities to hear speakers talk about issues that will engage students’ critical and creative thinking. In addition, a group of visual art students from area high schools will be in residence on campus during the week, which will add to the creative atmosphere of the workshop.

Students may stay on campus or commute from their homes. Full and partial scholarships are available. The registration deadline is May 20, but students may email Jeff Osborne for information an extension. Click here for more information.
