Summer Workshops in Creative Writing & Playwriting (2010)
Where better for talented young writers to hone their creative voices than at the acclaimed
Southampton Writers Conferences?
The YAWP Summer Workshops pair professional writers with high school students for 4-day retreats in playwriting and creative writing. The workshops run during the acclaimed Southampton Writers Conferences for adults, so the YAWP participants rub shoulders with professional writers and the esteemed faculty of Writers Conferences. They also have the opportunity to attend readings and other special events hosted by the Conference.
THE YAWP CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP, July 13 – 16, 2010
The YAWP Creative Writing Workshop brings young adults (ages 14-17) into the creative world of working writers. The workshop allows young poets, essayists and storytellers to discover and explore new talents as well as develop existing ones. By week’s end, students have a body of work to submit or publish and participate in a final reading open to the public.
THE YAWP SUMMER PLAYWRITING WORKSHOP, July 27 – 30, 2010
The YAWP Summer Playwriting Workshop takes students through four days of concentrated instruction in the process of writing a short, two-character play. The final day is devoted to presentation, in rehearsed reading format, of the participating students work. The readings are open to the public.
