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 35 years. This nonprofit arts program is sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at NC State University.


The Young Writers Workshop 2021 will offer individual online courses for July 12-30 2021. Registration is now closed. 

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 financial aid packages for the in person workshops as well.  

Students will also meet working authors and get the opportunity to win copies of their published books. See a list of our past special guest writers HERE
