For Students and Parents

  • Young Writers' Council is a collective of 10th, 11th, and 12th graders who identify as writers, artists and/or community changemakers. In the Fall semester, members will serve as the editorial board and contribute to The Good Troublemakers publication, as well as participate in writing workshops, site visits and interviews with local writers, activists and community members. In the Spring, in addition to site visits and workshops, members will collectively publish a book. The YWC meet every other Saturday, starting September 23rd. The 2017-2018 YWC application can be found here.

When our Youth Writing Center opens in early 2018, we'll have weekly free opportunities to engage in writing, creativity, and one-on-one support. In the meantime, we recommend you sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on upcoming workshops and events. We have new opportunities to write and create pop up all the time!
