The Reynolds Young Writers Workshop is an inspiring place for high school students who love to write. This 8-day residential program, to be held this year from June 17 – 25, 2018, brings together young writers who are passionate about artistic expression and eager to stretch in new directions.
In small workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, beginning poets and writers get the chance to develop their talents and refine their skills. Daily classes taught by Denison and other college creative writing professors give exposure to all the genres, while group sessions with reknowned visiting writers and readings enrich the experience. There’s also time to write individually and to meet with faculty one on one. Participants also contribute poems and short prose pieces to the Workshop Anthology, ready to take home at the week’s end.
Denison’s beautiful campus is in Granville, Ohio, just a 30-minute drive from Columbus. Group outings include trips to places like the Columbus Museum of Art, OSU's Wexner Center for the Arts, and Denison's 300-acre biological reserve for hiking and fun.
The Reynolds Young Writers Workshop offers an energizing writing experience for up to 48 rising high school juniors and seniors from all across the country. Generous financial assistance is available. Admissions are done on a need-blind basis and financial considerations should not stop you from applying.
