SUMMER WRITING STUDIO

For ages 12 to 18. Let your imagination run wild and create all the fantastic stories you’ve ever dreamed of! Story Studio and GVPL have teamed up to offer a free eight-week online program to help launch your writing into the stratosphere.

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!).
  • Access to online presentations with local writers.

Register today.
