Young Poets Society

Join us at our NEW writing camp this summer, Young Poets Society! Throughout the day students will have the chance to do daily writing exercises, edit each other’s writing in small teams and then have access to mentors that will help refine and perfect their pieces. Local and nationally recognized members of the writing community will come to speak to the students throughout the week to inspire and teach students how they can continue to develop their skills. To top the week off, participants will gather together and showcase their skills in an epic Poetry Slam!
