Sewanee Young Writer's Conference Pre-College

Sewanee, TN

Overview

Our workshops in playwriting, fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction are led by writers of significant accomplishment and promise. To ensure that each student has meaningful contact with the writers the students are required to read one book by each of these visiting writers before arriving.

Founded in 1994, the conference meets for two weeks each July, offering to high school students from all over the U.S. some of the resources brought to campus by the adult Sewanee Writers' Conference. In small workshops devoted to poetry, fiction, playwriting or creative nonfiction, serious young writers are able to polish their craft with the help of instructors who are themselves writers of significant accomplishment, and to form friendships with like-minded peers. There are also lectures by members of Sewanee’s English Department and special appearances by such major writers as Horton Foote, Ernest Gaines, Jill McCorkle, Alice McDermott, Andrew Hudgins, and many others.
