    Are you a teen who likes to write stories, poems, lyrics, novels, or screenplays? Then get involved in GrubStreet’s Young Adult Writers Program (YAWP)!

    Are you a teen interested in writing poems and stories? Maybe you’re just beginning and want to try your hand at creative writing in a supportive but rigorous atmosphere, or maybe you’ve been filling notebooks with plays and rhymes for years. Either way, GrubStreet's teen classes are for you! Each class will read and discuss published short stories and poems, do writing exercises, talk about craft (the tools and techniques in poetry and fiction), and the writing process. For high school students only. 

    Scholarships are available for all classes!


    ALL Teen series and multi-week classes will be remote and take place from 10:30 to 3:30pm.
