2018 Session: July 1 - July 14 

Are you a 9th, 10th, or 11th grader who is passionate about creative writing? Do you write poems or stories, in class or out, but wonder how good they are, and how you could make them better? Your parents admire them and your friends are impressed; your teachers help as much as they can. But what would a professional writer, doing the same sort of work and publishing it, make of your work? If you’ve asked yourself these sorts of questions, read on. And if you think the Sewanee Young Writers' Conference might be a valuable experience for you, get in touch with us and we’ll be glad to send you more information.
