The Longfellow students also participated in a tour and chapbook construction project at the AJB office, learning about publishing, formatting documents in InDesign, making last minute corrections, and putting putting togethert their own lasting impression of everyone’s written accomplishments during their time on campus.

Approximately thirty-five high school students from New England and the Tri-State area attended this intensive, week-long session— workshopping poetry, fiction, and nonfiction in the mornings, attending craft lectures in the afternoons, and gaining inspiration at featured readings by faculty and guest writers each evening at The Landing.
