Rhodes University Short Courses In Creative Writing
Short course: creative writing.
Campus Creative Writing
Facilitators: Carol Leff, Paul Mason and Gillian Rennie with visiting teachers Crystal Warren and Jeannie McKeown.
Ths campus creative writing course has been running since 1998, and continues to attract students both young and old. The ISEA is grateful to Prof Paul Walters and the Grahamstown Training College for their very generous donation of R5000 which was used towards funding the four full bursaries and two half bursaries which were awardes to local residents who would otherwise not have been able to afford the course fees.
Fifteen classes ran on Thursday evenings during university term time from February until July, providing a structured but free space for students to exercuse their creativity and celebrate the process of writing. The diverse class this year comprises an intake of 32 participants, five of whom had enjoyed doing the course previously.
Feedback from the students at the end of the course include the following:
“This course has been one of the highlights of my time in Grahamstown. I really enjoyed having a space to be creative and to practice a skill. The exercises we did were so much fun and often brought up a wide variety of emotions”
“I really appreciated the opportunity to share things that I wouln’t , I feel braver now. I am very sad that this course is over so I would suggest that it be extended beyond its session run! I enjoy the in-depth sharing that happened in small groups so maybe there could be more of that””Overall, I absolutely loved this course – the facilitators were excellent, the work was inspiring and I had fun getting to know people I may not otherwise have met.”
“I looked forward to every Thursday evening. The coordinators provided a simple, open, supportive environment. The exercises were invigorating and shook my creative tree. There was sufficient scope to explore my own writing. Although a wonderful, enriching experience that has launched me into poetry writing.”
After the fifteen evening sessions came to an end, several students volunteered to join the Aerial editorial team, steered by Nina McFall, a final year journalism student. The publication of prose and poetry written by course participants is due to appear in print before university exams begin, and will be launched with some of students reading their work.

Summer Writing Institute
Established in 1977 For High School Students
June 16-28, 2024 - On Campus Applications will open in December. Please join the director of the program, Dr. Rebecca Finlayson, on Tuesday, November 28 @ 7:00 PM CST for a virtual Q&A. You may register here.
The Academic Program The Summer Writing Institute at Rhodes College takes place annually for two weeks during June and is a residential academic program committed to developing the critical thinking and writing skills of high school students. Within the college′s liberal arts environment, students sharpen their reading and analytical skills and learn strategies for writing creatively and critically. At the end of the session, students receive a grade for their work and class participation, earn two college credits (transferable to most colleges and universities), and will complete a portfolio of college-level writing.
Approach The goal of the Institute is to offer a structured, diverse, and inspiring writing community. Sponsored by the Rhodes English Department and First Year Writing Program, the Institute emphasizes writing but also engages faculty from many college disciplines to expose students to a variety of subjects. Students choose between the College Writing Seminar, modeled after Rhodes’ First Year Writing Seminar, and the Creative Writing Workshop. Faculty teaching both types of courses emphasize the entire writing process from the seed of an idea to the completion of a story, poem, or argumentative essay. Through class discussions and peer workshops, each professor guides students in understanding others′ writing and in creating their own writing-expressing ideas, finding a voice, discovering a style, building a structure, and developing a theme or position.
In addition to coursework and writing seminars, students have the opportunity attend lectures, take advantage of Rhodes' world class facilities, and receive college prep advice from faculty and staff.
Admission and Tuition Information
The Institute invites any interested high school student to apply. Financial aid is available.

Social and Residential Life
Institute students experience life on campus as if they were Rhodes undergraduates, taking advantage of both the beautiful gothic architecture and state of the art academic and recreational facilities, including tennis and racquetball courts, basketball courts, a weight and exercise room, and a swimming pool. Students take their classes in Southwestern, Robertson, and Clough Halls, the central academic buildings on campus, eat meals in the refectory, and live with roommates in the residence halls. Select Rhodes undergraduates serve as Resident Assistants who supervise, live and dine with the students. On the weekends and after daily activities, students come together in social settings. Favorite annual events include trips to Memphis landmarks and Open Mic Night.
