The last FREE Saturday YAWP session of the year is happening this Saturday! Sign up here and join us! Teens can write amazing stories like those you'll read below, from our Summer 2014 Fellows.
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.
Our YAWPers continue to create gorgeous prose in these two 100 word stories. Here we're transported to fantastical worlds full of warriors, psychedelic circuses, and a certain twinge of nostalgia that will follow you right into your dreams. If you're a teen (or know a teen) who loves writing, please click here for info on how you can take part in YAWP (our Young Adult Writing Program). We've got lots of exciting programs coming up and our Saturday sessions are FREE!
