Registration for this year’s Fort Greene Park Summer Youth Workshops is about to begin! For six Saturdays, beginning July 13, young writers age 7 to 17 are invited to join NY Writers Coalition in beautiful Fort Greene Park to write in a supportive, creative environment. At the end of the summer each workshop participant will have the opportunity to share their work at NYWC’s 9th Annual Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival, where they’ll read alongside established writers. Past readers include Amiri Baraka, Jennifer Egan, Jhumpa Lahiri, Rick Moody, Gloria Naylor, Sapphire, Sonia Sanchez, Colson Whitehead, and many others.

These workshops are free and open to the public, and we hope you’ll join us for this amazing community writing tradition. Registration opens Monday, June 10, and there are two ways to register:
