GrubStreet's Summer Teen Fellowship immerses high school students in the writers' life of creative craft and publishing. During three weeks at GrubStreet, teens work with published authors on original prose and poetry, meet with literary agents and editors, take field trips to inspirational locales like the ICA, and more. In the spirit of writers' residencies for adults, all teens will receive a stipend for their commitment to the program and their time spent as working writers.
Who says you need to be over 18 to write something beautiful and devastating? Our amazing YAWP teens prove again and again that they can write their hearts out. Join us this Saturday to write out yours!

Each month from September to April, GrubStreet throws open its doors to give writers between the ages of thirteen and eighteen a chance to hone their craft and support each other through creative writing. Offering three classes per Saturday session – including exciting genres like Action in Fiction, Slam Poetry, and Fantasy Fiction – YAWP is a great opportunity for high school students to experiment with creative writing. The program has grown in scope and popularity since its launch and has been recognized by The Boston Globe as the hub for young writers.
