The Story Summit Writer’s School places great value in the creative process fueled by the pursuit of story. The Writer’s School Directed Study serves as a personalized resource for the needs of individual writers and the development of their screenplays, manuscripts or other writings. The Directed Study allows for particularly advanced writers to expand their creative horizons under the personal direction of world class mentors, encouraging students to explore tutelage outside the school’s major disciplines. The Directed Study helps writers to develop not only into complete artists, but well-rounded human beings who write.


In the Story Summit Directed Study, the writer and mentor or faculty member agree on a course of individualized study with guidance from the instructor. Each Directed Study reflects the personal needs of the writer and their story.


To apply for a Directed Study, students must submit a completed DIRECTED STUDY APPLICATION that describes the scope of work and faculty of choice. The application will be processed and a Directed Study Course Outline and fee will be returned to the applicant for review.


Please let us know  in the Directed Study Application the scope of the project and which faculty member you would like to work with. We will respond as soon as we can with a proposal and a price point. Thank you.
