Young Writers Institute
The Young Writers Institute is a five-day immersive, multi-genre creative writing day camp for students 14 to 18 years old. Through short exercises, close study of work by contemporary writers, and workshops, students will develop their command of the core elements of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Led by an exceptional faculty of published teaching artists with deep experience mentoring young writers, each student will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with them to develop a plan for future growth.
Spend a week developing your voice in the Young Writers Institute writing workshop. In this course, we will learn elements of craft that will help bring your ideas to life on the page. Through writing exercises and experimentation, close-reading of established and emerging writers, and feedback from your instructor and peers, you will craft stories and poems with intentionality and heart. You will also learn revising and editing techniques to make your pieces their absolute strongest and will conclude the five-day course with an anthology of you and your classmates’ very best work.
