Young Writers Workshop

The CCWC is proud to present Young Writers Workshop, now in its fourth  decade, which has helped many of our talented youth improve their writing and work towards publication. 

The CCWC has been hosting this workshop for students grades 8-12  from the schools of Cape Cod and southern New England — except during the pandemic years 2020-2022.


Free Program for all student writers from Cape Cod and Southern New England


The Young Writers Program offers a week of inspiration, learning and fun for writers in grades 8-12, ages 13-18, hosted by the Cape Cod Writers Center and taught by Marcella Pixley, a middle school teacher and the award-winning  author of four novels, the most recent Trowbridge Road.
