Register online until August 17.

How can people participate?

Step 1: Sign up online to register for free. Choose to write as much or as little as you want – a single scene or entire chapters. Set your own goals to reach during your eight weeks in our virtual studio.

Step 2: We’ll add you to our online “writer’s room.” There, you’ll get weekly advice and support as you write. You’ll also have access to:

  • Feedback on your work in progress from our editors, who include professional authors and editors.
  • Virtual coaching sessions and mini-seminars with other young writers.
  • Publication of your work in a Story Studio anthology (you’ll get a free PDF copy so you can brag to your friends!).
