Spring has arrived, and summer is just around the corner! We're hoping you can spread the word to your students that the John Carroll University Young Writers Workshop (YWW), a week-long summer camp at John Carroll University, is now offering both day and residential options, so students from anywhere can experience and learn inspiring and rigorous creative writing! This year’s workshop takes place from July 30 to August 3, 2018. Here’s a video about our program. For more information about the JCU YWW, please visit sites.jcu.edu/yww. To apply to the program, please visit sites.jcu.edu/yww/the-program/how-to-apply.
As a published writer, I have always sought out other writers to share my writing to improve my craft. Community is essential to my experience of being a writer. I founded the YWW in 2010 because I believed that high school writers also craved a space to read, write, and share their work—with established writers and peers. Mentorship and community provide the kindling for the writer’s fiery desire to write great stories and poems. The alums of the YWW have proved me right!
