Teen Creative Writing Seminar
Visit theTeen Creative Writing Seminar page.
Writopia’s Teen Writing Seminar is open to rising juniors and seniors. Over the course of two weeks, participants will delve into their craft with published authors, and will meet and share their work with literary agents and editors. Each day will begin with a small fiction workshop (8 - 10 participants) from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. During this time, writers will write on our laptops and receive feedback from the author/instructor, as well as from their peers. Workshop time will also allow for writing and editing. At 1:00, writers will have one hour for lunch--please send your writer with something to eat! Between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., writers will have the opportunity to take electives in poetry or memoir, led by published poets and personal essayists. The Writopia Teen Seminar is unique in that participants will have the opportunity to work closely with published authors, agents, and publishing editors. Writers will also take part in evening readings and literary events, and will have the opportunity to explore the literary scene.
