    Note to community members (non-Hamline students): While the Summer Writing Workshop is open to community members who have completed a BA, students accepted into the course are expected to have experience in creative writing and a strong foundation in the elements of the craft. The workshop is a graduate-level course and students should be able to discuss readings and fellow students' work at that level; the workshop is not an introductory level course designed to teach the basics.
