Atlanta Young Writer’s Institute programs for serious writers

High-school students can learn about the craft of writing from pros, then put what they’ve learned to work in the Summer Intensive program offered by the Atlanta Young Writer’s Institute.

During this two-week workshop, rising 10th to 12th graders will learn about different literary genres, then will write a chapter of a novel, a one-act play, a short story or a collection of poems.

This year’s intensive will be held June 6-17, 2011, at Agnes Scott College. Applications are being accepted now on a rolling admission basis. The class size is limited to 16.

Meanwhile, students can get a taste of AYWI at a fiction and poetry slam seminar, which will be held April 23 at Decatur High School. The event, which is open to middle- and high-school students, is a combination of instruction and open mic reading. See AYWI’s upcoming events page for registration information.
