Announcing Teen Summer Remote Classes
Do you have a teen writer in your life? Let them know about GrubStreet's Summer Teen Classes starting this June. This summer, we've put together an entire catalog of exciting remote teen classes designed to keep the YAWP community connected while also providing plenty of optional portions for breaks from screens when needed.
Each class will feature virtual craft talks, writing exercises, a rotating selection of fun screenless activities, group projects, and the chance to meet and mingle virtually with teens and instructors from other classes happening simultaneously. Plus, each week will end with an optional open mic and milestone celebration to cheer on everyone's accomplishments.

GrubStreet is excited to offer many more full scholarships for our teen writing workshops this year. Scholarship forms can be found on each class page. After you complete the super easy scholarship application, wait to hear back before registering for class because you’ll need the scholarship code, which can’t be applied retroactively. Scholarships are distributed on a rolling basis, right up to the day before class starts. However, the sooner you apply, the better your chances of receiving a scholarship before classes fill up!

GrubWrites is a space for the writing and reading community to share ideas and seek advice, a place where writers at the very beginning of their careers publish alongside established authors. Book lovers, we bring you reviews, recommendations, and conversations with exciting new authors to keep you up to speed on all things lit. Writers, this is your one stop shop for expert craft talk, opinions on how we learn and teach writing, and essential advice about the publishing industry.
Plus, we want to hear from you! Our ongoing call for submissions is open to literary community members of all types and persuasions. We want to hear from students, teachers, authors, readers, editors, agents, publicists, and any devotee of the written word. If you have something to say about writing, reading, the publishing industry, or anything related to the literary world, this is the place to voice it. We’re particularly committed to advocating for a diverse range of voices in the literary marketplace and raising the visibility of writers from under-represented communities.See other articles by Info
