YES! (Young Emerging Storytellers) Virtual Writing Workshop Registration
Register today for Grand View University's virtual YES! (Young Emerging Storytellers) Writing Workshop for high school students. Sponsored by the Braida Institute, our summer camp offers fiction, poetry, and dramatic writing seminars taught by Grand View professors who are also published authors, playwrights, and screenwriters.
What: Grand View University’s Virtual Creative Writing Workshop is an opportunity for high school students to generate a new, high quality, fiction (novelette) or nonfiction (long essay) piece. Enrolled students will work with Grand View’s Braida Endowed Chair of Creative Writing over a 10-month period. During this time, participants will receive creative writing lectures that will help guide their writing process. Every quarter, these young writers will submit their work-inprogress and will receive feedback from other student writers through group workshop sessions, as well as written and/or verbal feedback from the Endowed Chair. The completed work will be published in the Workshop’s digital publication, The Braida Journal of Creative Writing and students will earn a GV Creative Writing Certificate.
Who: Any student entering or currently enrolled in high school.
When: The Workshop will span from June through May. Students will participate virtually in a 3-hour Saturday Session during the months of July, October, February, and May.
