YAWP Summer Workshops for Gifted Writers

The Young Artists and Writers Project (YAWP), created by Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Writing and Literature program, is dedicated to mentoring young people in the development of creative expression and critical thinking through writing.

The YAWP Summer Workshops pair seasoned writers with students, ages 13-18, in fiction, essay, poetry, playwriting and screenwriting.

Workshops include:

Creative Writing (Southampton & Manhattan)

Student writers in fiction, poetry and essay discover new ways to explore their ideas and have them heard. By week’s end, students have several pieces of completed work to submit or publish.

Scriptwriting (Southampton)

Five days of concentrated writing, during which each student creates a short, two-character script for stage or screen. The final day is devoted to a rehearsed reading of students’ work at the 2015 Summer Writing Conference.
