NYWC’s Fort Greene Summer Youth Program is now in it’s 14th year! It’s a fun, six-week series of free Saturday morning creative writing workshops for kids and teens around New York City. 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 explore their imaginations and dive into different genres of writing. There is also a reading circle for parents/guardians where they will have a chance to read, examine and discuss numerous short stories-all while the kids and teens are nearby writing.
The following Saturday after the final writing workshop we will hold our 14th Annual Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival (LitFest). It will take place this year at Roulette. The festival is our culmination event, where we celebrate the writing produced throughout the summer. The kids and teens from the program will take the mic and read alongside some well-known and up-and-coming writers.
The Summer Youth Program and Literary Festival provides a means for self-expression and creativity for the youth 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 annual Brooklyn literary tradition. Find out even more HERE.
