The John Carroll University Young Writers Workshop, a week-long summer camp at John Carroll University, is now offering both day camp and overnight residential options, so students from all over the country to experience inspiring and rigorous creative writing! This year’s workshop takes place from July 22-26, 2019. Here’s a video about the program.
In the JCU YWW, students grades 8-12 participate in an immersive writing experience in the craft of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Studying with acclaimed professors, students read, engage in writing exercises, workshop their stories and poems, and experience a pre-college environment. They compose new work, which will be published in our annual anthology. The last day of camp features a reception and reading by the Young Writers.
For more information about the JCU YWW, please visit http://sites.jcu.edu/yww/. The cost for the day-only option is $380; the residential option is $980, though there is an early-bird rate in April.
Application deadline for the workshop is June 1, 2019.
