Our summer workshop introduces rising 9th to 12th graders the craft of literary editing. We teach students how to approach the editing of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction, form a beneficial editor-writer relationship, and understand the roles and processes of the editorial pipeline.
Besides advancing your reading and writing skills, this course helps prepare students for leadership roles in the literary arts. Those who successfully complete the course are invited to join our editorial staff as a Second Reader. Students also tell us the skills help them be active at their high school or college literary magazines, as well as other endeavors in media/journalism.
The workshop fee is $575 and includes instruction, materials, and a meal each day.
Check back in January 2020 for next summer workshops!
* Students must be US residents age 13 or older
"I learned that with editing comes a deeper understanding of the process writers go through as they create their pieces. It's about embracing their work while encouraging them to continue growing."
