NYS Summer Young Writers Institute 15th Anniversary
June 26–July 6, 2013
WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATION FOR THE 2013 SUMMER YOUNG WRITERS INSTITUTE
The New York State Writers Institute in conjunction with the Office of the Dean of Special Programs at Skidmore College is pleased to announce the 15th annual creative writing workshop for high school students. The New York State Summer Young Writers Institute (SYWI) will be held at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York from June 26 to July 6, 2013.
Participants in the Summer Young Writers Institute receive instruction in poetry, prose, and imaginative nonfiction, and engage in the critical evaluation of each other’s work. By bringing top high school student writers together to work extensively with professional writers, the SYWI provides young artists with recognition, respect, opportunities for artistic development, and peer support.
The SYWI is open to any high school student entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade in the fall of 2013. Approximately 36 students will be chosen, based on the submission of creative writing samples (see application for details). Full and partial scholarships are available to participants based on need.
