Young and Teen Writers Workshops


Take a journey into the world of creative writing! 

The Young and Teen Writers Workshops have been serving the community for over 38 years. This nonprofit arts program is sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at NC State University.


Please check back in spring 2024 for next summer!

NC State Young Writers Workshop is one of the oldest workshops for young writers in the nation and remains one of the most affordable options for academic programs. We offer generous need-based financial aid packages.  

Students will also meet working authors with the opportunity to win copies of their published books. Learn about our past guest artists HERE
