Register for NYWC’s 2017 Summer Youth Program


NY Writers Coalition’s Fort Greene Summer Youth Program is right around the corner!

Now in its 13th year, NYWC’s Fort Greene Summer Youth Program is a fun, six-week series of free Saturday creative writing workshops for youth in the New York City area. The workshops serve 6-12 year olds and teenagers in separate, dynamic and innovative writing groups designed to create a safe space for young writers to find their voices and explore all genres of creative writing.

Lit Fest provides a means for self-expression and creativity for area young people while increasing the accessibility to the Arts and literature for all. We hope you and the young writers in your life will join us for this Brooklyn literary tradition.

Workshops take place Saturdays @ 10:30-12:00 p.m. in Fort Greene Park, with a special reading group for parents whose children are enrolled in the program.  This year’s workshop dates are July 8, 15, 22 & 29 and August 5 & 12. Please plan to attend all six weeks.
