Summer Workshop for Teen Writers at Youth Communication

Youth Communication is hosting its 38th Annual Summer Writing Workshop from July 5 - August 11, 2017. Workshop participants receive one-on-one mentoring from a professional editor, write and revise personal stories about their life, go on field trips, and make friends with other writers. Participants’ stories are published in the award-winning YCteen and Represent magazines, which are read by tens of thousands people each year. The theme of this year’s workshop is “Write Your American Story” as writers participate in group activities exploring how their own stories fit into the American mosaic. Applications must be received by May 19, 2017.
