Young Writers' Workshop
Open to young people entering grades 6–12 in the fall. Sponsored by Colgate University and directed by Colgate employees.
The Young Writers’ Workshop is a 1-week, non-residential day program for middle and high school students interested in creative writing. The workshop provides a stimulating and supportive environment in which young writers experiment in poetry, fiction, and other genres of imaginative written expression.
Young Writers work closely with certified teachers and college mentors in groups set by grade level. Visiting writers from different genres each year (fiction, poetry, screenwriting, graphic novels, etc.) start each day with readings of their published work, then lead the students in craft exercises.
In addition to writing, students participate in a variety of afternoon recreational activities, including access to Colgate’s swimming pool and hiking trails.
