UCLA Writing Project 2020 Summer Programs for Students

All virtually yours.

We at the UCLA Writing Project are excited to announce our 2020 summer programs for students entering grades 5-12. Virtually, of course! This is a big change for us—a different breed of cat, but a magnificent animal nonetheless. We’ve brainstormed with our summer Writing Project teachers, all UCLA Writing Project Fellows. We’ve consulted with California and National Writing Project colleagues. Bottom line: We’ll continue to give our students exquisite attention, and they’ll experience pleasure and joy as they find the best words to capture their thoughts.

ucla creative writing summer program

And what about the entering twelfth graders in the College Personal Essay workshop ? They meet for just 12 hours over a four-day period. And that’s the perfect amount of time for zeroing in on the challenging and exciting task at hand: showing in what ways their hard work has translated to insightful understandings and how their experiences have built character.

What else should you know?

  • Our virtual practices will offer students appreciation, support, structure—and fun!
  • The day will combine whole group class time, small group sharing with peers, individual writing time. Synchronous and asynchronous experiences.
  • All students will also have time to interact with their teacher one-on-one.
  • Students in the two-week workshops will craft an anthology of selected writing.
  • We have a limited number of scholarships for low-income families.

We hope to see you this summer!

Navigate the contemporary entertainment marketplace under the guidance of a TV industry professional

The UCLA Film and Television Writing for TV Summer Institute introduces motivated high school students enrolled in 9th – 12th grade in Spring 2024 to writing for television in Hollywood. This track mirrors the practice of professional writers in the world of episodic television and digital media by teaching students how to develop original series concepts and how to navigate the contemporary marketplace. In the process, students learn how to identify and capture the tone, characters, dialogue, and themes that make their story unique while collaborating in a workshop environment with their peers. Previous experience in screenwriting is not required, just a passion for storytelling!

Students will write a beat sheet and outline for the first act of their original pilot episode, a series treatment, and the teaser of the pilot script over the course of the class, while getting the feedback and tools they will need to further write their pilot episodes and develop future TV show ideas after the program. The program culminates in a table reading of a section of their script by professional actors.

In small workshops, students meet three times a week to discuss ideas, break stories, and give feedback and notes on each other’s work. This program carries four units of UCLA credit. Please note that this is an intensive course and students are expected to spend a minimum of 25 hours-per-week writing outside of class meetings.
