    The Teen Writers Workshop is a two-week summer afternoon program that helps writers ages 14-19 develop and explore their creative writing talents and skills. Students are immersed into the art of writing, while making connections with peers who share similar passions. 

    Course offerings will be in poetry, creative nonfiction, graphic novels, dramatic writing, fiction, and genre fiction. Students will select their top three preferences for course studies. Students will be placed in at least one of their preferred classes. There is approximately 9-12 students per group taught by a single teacher. Students will be enrolled in two classes. A typical day includes 65 minutes of class time, 45 minutes of craft talk by a guest lecturer or faculty member, and 20 minutes of snack time. Awards are given at the end of the program, and celebrated with a reading of your original work!
