Lighthouse's Young Writers Workshops are designed to foster creativity, self-expression, and excitement about writing. There are no grades here; just the stories. We offer the following forms of young writers workshops:
- In-House—After-school, Weekend Workshops, Young Authors Collective (formerly Teen Council), and Summer Camp
- Outreach—In schools, at juvenile residential treatment centers, and in collaboration with other arts organizations
Lighthouse accepts writers who are in 3rd grade through senior year of high school. In-house workshops are limited to 15 students, which allows for plenty of individual attention and helps members feel comfortable exploring their own writing. Our hope is that students leave the workshop with more trust in their voice, confidence in their language, and happy anticipation about the stories they have yet to write.
Please download our financial aid application for any of our programs here.
