2013 Antioch Writers's Workshop Young Writers Program

For the fourth year in a row, Antioch Writers' Workshop--a nationally recognized creative writing workshop since 1986--offers an opportunity for young writers (those entering 10th-12th grades in fall 2013, or ages 15-18) to attend the workshop held at Antioch University Midwest in Yellow Springs, July 6-12.

Young writers must submit three pages of creative writing and a letter of recommendation from a teacher, librarian, coach or youth program leader, to the workshop by May 29. Selected writers receive an AWW Young Writers' Scholarship in the amount of $375.00, reducing the total cost of attending to $300.00 for a full week of writing classes, a special writing seminar, and lunches all provided by Dayton Daily News sponsors.

The Young Writers' program includes attendance to the workshop's morning classes with all participants and the Young Writers' Afternoon Seminar led by Trudy Krisher, award winning author of several Young Adult novels including Spite FencesUncommon Faith and Fallout. During the seminar, selected writers will work on individual projects and develop their creative writing craft.

This opportunity is limited to 12 participants and open to students who live in the Ohio counties of Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Clark, Clinton, Fayette, Madison and Warren.

Sharon Short, Director, Antioch Writers' Workshop says, "The students in the Young Writers' program develop their craft, learn from outstanding mentors, create long-lasting friendships, and make a nice addition to their college applications. The program is a great a way to help develop the next generation of creative writers of fiction, poetry and nonfiction, and we're excited to again offer this program."

Accepted applicants will be notified shortly after May 29. To apply or for more information about the program, please visit the Young Writers page at www.antiochwritersworkshop.com or email info@antiochwritersworkshop.com.
