The thesis is devoted to the Higher Institute of Literature and Art named after V. Ya. Bryusov (HILA) - the first institution in Russia which taught writing techniques. The HILA is presented in the context of literary theories of 1920s: sociological literary theory, formalism, and psychoanalytic critique. The interpretation of the syllabi is based on theoretical works of Institute's professors. Despite the gradual ideologization and proletarization of the Institute, it was closed in 1925. The professors continued to teach at the Higher State Literary Courses (HSLC) - the successor of the HILA. In the thesis a short history of the HSLC is presented and the reasons of its closure are investigated. Moreover, the influence of the HILA and HSLC on the organization of Maxim Gorky Literature Institute is shown.
