*Note: Parents/guardians must complete this permission form online if your teen is under 18.* Unlike previous forms, you only need to fill this out ONE TIME, not for every class. If you cannot remember whether you have already filled it out, please email [email protected] and we will check for you!

If you do not complete the form, registrations could be voided and the cancellation policy will apply. If the student is 18, simply let us know at [email protected]

Class Description:

Come discover the kind of writing you're (probably) not doing for your ELA class!

Q: What do you get when you combine identity wheels, eavesdropped conversations, prose poetry, dialogue circles, lyric essays, flash fiction, giant haiku, iambic pentameter-speaking pirates, lunch tweets, graphic memoir, your most authentic self, wishes, dreams, lies, and snacks?

A: Lots of new writing in a hand-bound chapbook

Side effects may include an increase in self-awareness, un/likely friendships, and contagious laughter.

Instructions and snacks provided; the rest is up to you.


Students will take away a packet of readings, 4 new genre-bending pieces of their own, and a hand-bound chapbook that they will make.

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?
For writers ages 13 - 18 ONLY. Writing notebooks are available, but feel free to bring your own.

Remember, parents/guardians must also complete this permission form online before the start of the class. Otherwise, registrations could be voided and the cancellation policy will apply. If the student is 18, simply let us know at [email protected]

*If you are registering on behalf of your teen, add their email information in the “For a Friend or Child?” field on the right-hand side of the screen before you check out. This will send them a direct link and reminder to create their own profile with GrubStreet. 
(After adding the class to your cart, click "Checkout" and click “Add” next to “For a Friend or Child?” on the right-hand side to fill in their email. This is an easy way of linking the class to your child and encourages them to create their own account.)
