Every summer, the Juniper Institute gathers a community of writers to explore the creative process and develop new approaches to the craft of writing. Hosted by the MFA Program for Poets & Writers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Juniper 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.

POETRY, FICTION, NONFICTION and WORDS + PICTURES WORKSHOPS: 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. General admission applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Scholarship applications must be postmarked by January 15, 2019. Workshops fill quickly; early application is recommended.
