Welcome Our YAWP Working in the Arts Fellows!

Every year, hundreds of talented teen writers participate in our Young Adult Writers Program (YAWP). Many of them are ideal candidates for jobs in the literary arts, yet paid internships and fellowships that offer direct industry experience can be hard to find. GrubStreet wanted to create more career development pathways for passionate and capable teens--an investment in a stronger literary landscape now and in the future.

Our next instructor in our YAWP Summer Playlist series is E.B. Bartels, author of Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter, forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Staring

By Alexa Bennett

 

You could only stare at him. Memorize the veins on his hands, and blotches on his skin, wondering what it’d be like to tell him he’s beautiful.
