TEENS Young Writers Project Accepting Applications: November 15, 2022–January 13, 2023 FREE TO APPLY & PARTICIPATE
GRADES 9–12: The Carnegie Center invites young women and nonbinary writers to apply to the Young Writers Project, a FREE series of intensive workshops focused on creative self-expression through writing. The selected group of participants will attend seven sessions. In these workshops, experienced writers in their 20s and 30s will mentor on a variety of genres, encouraging participants to look within themselves for issues that are important in their lives. Participants will also learn techniques to deliver effective literary reading and other business-of-writing tips. The program will culminate in a public reading and a Writing Mentor Day. Previously called the Young Women Writers Project, the Young Writers Project welcomes writers of all historically underrepresented genders who celebrate varied expressions of feminism.
