Event Description

Event Description:

Debating whether to apply to our Teen Writing Fellowship? Join us and two of last year’s fellows, Daniela Martinez and Nida Syed, as we talk about a day in the life of the Teen Writing Fellowship and what young writers gain from the fellowship experience beyond learning new techniques. The panel will end with a Q&A session, where no question is too big or small to be asked. We hope to see you there!

If you do not have a GrubStreet account with us to register for the event, no worries! Creating an account is super easy and takes less than a minute.


For questions about the event, email us at [email protected].

About the Panelists:

Daniela Martinez is a teen writer in 10th grade. They love writing short creative stories and poetry, especially pantoum and free verse!

Nida Syed is an Indian writer who loves writing and performing slam poetry, in addition to writing memoirs and romantic fiction pieces that usually include South Asian and/or Muslim characters. She hopes to write more professionally in the future and even publish a couple of her poems. Nida has won an award at her school for being one of the poets of her poetry club.
