The Youth Writers Camp curriculum addresses current events, including topics related to social justice, while at the same time keeping August Wilson’s literary legacy as a core objective. All camp sessions will be virtual and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. During each session, time will be allotted for discussions, reading, writing, and sharing; *allowing students to freely express themselves in a nurturing artistic environment. Youth Writers Camp is suitable for middle and high school age students.


*All participating students are expected to submit an original piece of writing at the end of the workshop session(s).

On February 18, 2021 there will be a special pre-camp session that will give parents and students the opportunity to learn more about the Youth Writers Camp curriculum for 2021, provide them an opportunity to meet AWAACC staff, and ask questions of our amazing educators who will be instructing each monthly session.
