About The Kenyon Institute
For a week on one of the world’s most beautiful college campuses, the Kenyon Institute immerses you in an intellectual experience that can be profound, both personally and professionally. Writing workshops led by eminent practitioners in everything from playwriting to spiritual writing form the heart of the Institute. Other offerings include a stimulating “education vacation” for adults, this year with a cycling option for those who want to enjoy the scenery beyond the hill. Time to write, excellent instructors, personal feedback, inspiring colleagues—the Kenyon Institute is an opportunity for transformation.
