Young Writers helps students explore ideas through writing and develop their creative and critical abilities with respect to language. Three 90-minute workshops each day balance class discussions of assigned readings with frequent work in small writing or inquiry groups and time for individual writing. In addition to free-writing exercises and responses to prompts, pupils compose stories, poetry, personal narratives, dialogues, reflective passages and experimental pieces. Participants regularly share works-in-progress both in class and in smaller peer review groups. Students each read pieces aloud as part of a series of public readings by visiting poets, fiction writers and essayists. Weekend activities include social events and field trips.
