Summer Writing Workshop: Apply Today!

Summer Writing Workshop: Apply Today! Apply to Youth Communication's 42nd annual intensive summer writing workshop. Be part of a group of 12 young people who will participate in writing lessons, discussions, and group activities. Explore your feelings about and experiences with race and social justice. Write stories that will help other young people see they are not alone in their experiences of discrimination. Share your ideas for change that will lead to more fair and just schools and communities.

Our newsroom is a safe space for open conversations. Guest speakers and field trips will deepen our understanding of these topics. No prior writing experience is required, but you must be able to attend for all six weeks. Your stories will be published in our publications and may appear in Youth Communication’s curricula.

Applications must be received by May 14, 2021.
