The John Carroll Young Writers Workshop is a writing workshop for students entering grades 8–12 hosted by John Carroll University from July 19–23, 2021, with award-winning faculty Philip Metres and Lydia Munnell.
From the organizers:
The John Carroll Young Writers Workshop (for students grades 8–12) will take place on July 19-July 23, 2021, on the campus of John Carroll University, directed by award-winning creative writing faculty from John Carroll University. This year, we’re offering both day camp and overnight options. Students participate in a rigorous and inspiring program that provides an introduction to the art and craft of poetry and short fiction. In morning and afternoon sessions, students study with acclaimed writers, engaging in writing-intensive exercises designed to address the elements of craft. They participate in lively workshop sessions in which they discuss each other’s work to spur revision. Over the week, students have individual conferences with Dr. Philip Metres about their
writing, and then submit writing for the YWW anthology, published on the final day of the camp. Families are welcome to attend the final reception and reading.
If we’re still dealing with the pandemic, we can offer the workshop fully online. All you need is access to a computer, wifi, a Zoom account, and a quiet space to write and talk with your cohort!
Applications can be submitted online at go.jcu.edu/yww. Applications are due by June 1st. Scholarships may be available.
