School Break Workshop
School Break Creative Writing Workshops
Pairing seasoned writers with students, ages 13-18, during winter and spring school breaks.
Student writers will develop and hone their fiction, poetry and personal essay skills, discovering the most powerful ways to express their ideas and to have them heard. By week’s end, each student will have several pieces of completed work to submit or publish.
All student work is eligible for publication in the YAWP Ezine (www.yawpezine.com) and for presentation in the “Sounding Our YAWP” event in late April.
Course Fee: $525 for the week. Partial scholarships available.
The Young American Writers Project (YAWP), created by Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Writing and Literature program, is dedicated to mentoring young people in the development of creative expression and critical thinking through writing.
