Course Description

Immerse Education is an award-winning academic summer school that offers programs for students aged 13 to 15 in prestigious academic institutions. The goal of this program is to give academically rigorous content that expands participants' knowledge and love for their chosen field. The program also provides young varied and essential views into what it would be like to study at university through 40 hours of academic sessions over the two week.

Individual work, referred to as the "Personal Project" in this curriculum, is required. This is usually an essay or a presentation given on the last day of the program. Participants will get comments on their work, which may be included the final assessment of the participant.

Creative writing is a topic that combines creativity with attention to detail, novel ways of expression, and a rich history of previous examples from which to draw inspiration. Not just in the literary realm, but also in a wide range of commercial and business situations, the ability to generate interesting and innovative material is highly valued. The Immerse Education Creative Writing program's goal is to expose participants to the fundamentals of the topic and to emphasize the options open to those who want to continue creative writing in the future. Participants will gain experience in a number of practical skills as they examine their own and their peers' work.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to Creative Writing
  • Editing – Critiquing and Workshopping
  • Form and Plot
  • Character Creation
  • Character Development
  • Dialogue
