Now enrolling: Creative Writing for Teens at WriterHouse

Over the past couple of years I’ve gotten many inquiries about workshops for teens. If you’re still looking, now’s your chance:

Roadtrip: A Creative Writing Workshop for Teens (Rising 9th-12th graders)
Instructor: Carey Morton (Editor’s note: She’s AWESOME)
Cost $100
4 Wednesdays, July 8-July 29, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
At WriterHouse, 508 Dale Ave., Charlottesville (Behind the Preston Ave. Bodo’s)

In this four-week-long writer’s workshop, students will work closely with each other to define and practice their own favorite genres of writing. Any form of written self-expression will be welcome in this creative class for all levels of writers. Hone a collection of poems, draft a short story, begin a novel, or weave together song lyrics and film scripts. Each writer will develop a personal goal for the month and will rely on feedback from the circle to workshop and shape his or her work toward that goal. As we create a safe haven for each voice, our common aim will be to work both collectively and in solitude to draft new work through daily writing practice and to polish existing projects in workshop sessions.

Carey Morton has lived and worked in Charlottesville for the past twelve years since completing her Master’s degree in Modern Irish Poetry at Wake Forest University in 1997. As an English teacher at Tandem Friends School for the past decade, she has cajoled and nudged students into discovering their writers’ voices.

An early registration discount is available through June 12th.

WriterHouse is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
