The Summer Workshop provides a space for undergraduate students interested in journalism, criticism, politics, art, and nonprofit work to learn about and practice engaging the public through dialogue and writing. The theme of this year’s workshop is “the future,” and its central questions are: How do we think about the future, especially when we cannot trust that it will be better than the present? What do we owe future generations? Students will learn to address such questions in conversation with various philosophical, political, and religious traditions, as well as with one another. For their final assignment, they will design a public-facing project to foster dialogue on their own college campuses.

The inaugural workshop will be taught by Point editors Jon Baskin and Anastasia Berg. All student expenses, including tuition, room, and board, will be covered. College credit will be offered. Applications due March 1, 2023.
