New Hampshire Literacy Institutes

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We appreciate your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. In response to the COVID-19 situation, UNH is continuing to monitor health and safety recommendations from State and national agencies.

The Summer Literacy Institute has made changes to the courses and workshops for Summer 2020. We will be moving all graduate courses courses to an online format.  We aim to create a similar experience of community and support for all participants. Please see the personal note from our Director here for more information. This change aligns with the University of New Hampshire’s decision regarding the safety of students, instructors, and the community for summer courses.

Be part of a vibrant community of readers, writers and teachers thoughtfully considering and practicing their crafts.   Come for the chance to work with our wonderful faculty, the camaraderie, the support, the laughter and the sense of UNH literacy history.
