Workshop at Stanford
- I participated in a two-week creative writing program offered by Education Unlimited at Stanford, and I had a great experience there -- the friends I made and the feedback I received on my writing was invaluable, and I would greatly reccomend the program to any rising sophomore, junior or senior looking for a creative writing program to attend in the summer. Highlights of the program included guest talks by writers, and a trip to literary San Francisco.

Workshop at USC
- I attended a great creative writing summer program at University of Southern California last year. It was a 4 week workshop that focused on several different writing topics, like personal essays and flash fiction, and I got 3 college credits for it.
