Description

For teens who love to write, The Writers Circle’s Summer Creative Writing Intensives are the perfect place to hone their craft. Students will develop their voices and writing ideas in a generous, creative environment with professional authors as instructors. Each week they’ll choose from two different genres to focus on – fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and more. They’ll focus on their own writing projects as well as new work inspired by creative exercises and prompts. They’ll receive supportive, constructive feedback from instructors and peers. Special excursions, literary inter-activities, guest speakers, and a reading on Fridays for family and friends will round out the week. They’ll also have the chance to submit their work for publication in The Writers Circle’s online journal.

This coming summer, they’ll:

  • work with professional authors to develop their voices and writing ideas
  • choose two different genres to focus on each week
  • work on their own writing projects and get personal editorial feedback
  • get supportive, constructive writing critique from instructors and peers
  • submit and publish work in The Writers Circle’s online journal
  • spend time examining the writing of peers and masters

Plus they’ll meet like-minded young writers from the local area who share their passion!
