Young Writers Workshops

Every summer, CCWC hosts the Young Writers Workshop, a creative writing program for students ages 12-18 from the schools of Cape Cod and southern New England, during the week of our Annual Conference. Students are selected on a competitive basis, and those unable to pay are given a tuition-free scholarship.

The 2013 Young Writers Workshop was a resounding success!

Three classes of students shared an intensive week studying prose and poetry, meeting and forming friendships with others writers from area schools, and celebrating their work in an evening reading and recognition event.

2013 participants and their parents called it “an amazing week” and “a wonderful experience.”
