Do you like to write poems, lyrics, stories, novels or screenplays? Join Grub Street’s Young Adult Writers Program (YAWP), a FREE creative writing workshop for Boston-area high schoolers.
We offer two sessions of classes each YAWP Saturday: one from 10 AM to Noon, followed by an hour for socializing and lunch (we'll provide snacks, but you are encouraged to bring your own lunch), and another session of classes from 1 PM to 3 PM, followed by an open-mic reading. Each session includes the same classes, and you can participate in both so long as you take different classes. For example, you could take a poetry class in the morning session and a fiction class in the afternoon.
YAWP dates for Fall 2011 (all Saturdays)
September 24th, October 29th, November 19th, December 10th
