Class Description:

You asked for more time to get writing, we delivered with this two-week creative writing class! Same amount of class time, same price, over two weeks to help build your writing community in an unrushed environment! Whether you’re working on your first novel or writing short stories, poetry, plays, or even fanfiction, this is an opportunity to improve your skills and learn about new genres and forms of storytelling. Each day of this workshop will be filled with writing and reading exercises designed to get you thinking and creating through language. Students will be encouraged to work together as a group to help offer constructive criticism of each other’s work in a supportive and practical manner. How do you engage all the senses in your writing, so that your readers can clearly and fully experience your stories and ideas? Can you sit down and have a conversation with your characters? How can you twist and tease language so that all of its sounds become your tools? 

By the end of two weeks, you'll have your toolbox full of ideas, beginnings, and some drafts of various creative writing genres to keep your work moving forward. This course is geared toward creative, energetic, and open-minded writers all of levels.

**Note that this class spans 2 weeks with 2 hour classes every day. If you want to spend the whole day at Grub for two weeks, consider registering for this class along with Create Your Own Podcast & Stories, which runs from 10:30am to 1:00pm on the same days**

Classes marked as “full” can still have scholarship spots available. So apply! 
GrubStreet is happy to be able to offer some full scholarships for our teen writing camps. Please wait to hear from our Scholarship committee before registering for the class, as scholarships cannot be applied retroactively. Scholarships are distributed on a rolling basis, right up to 48 hours before class start. However, the sooner you apply, the better your chances of receiving a scholarship.

Who Should Register?
