We’re now accepting applications for the 2019 Young Authors’ Workshop!

Each summer, 826 Valencia hosts its annual Young Authors’ Workshop (YAW), a three-week writing camp open for students entering grades ten through twelve, who are excited to explore a diverse range of genres, edit their writing in small groups, and become published authors.

Professional writers, poets, and spoken word artists will teach guest lessons and volunteer tutors will help with revision and editing. At the end of the program, students who meet the camp’s requirements and expectations will receive a $250 stipend.
Students from all over the Bay Area are welcome to apply, though priority will be given to students in SFUSD, especially to our partner schools and students with financial need. Whether you spend your free time writing poetry in your bedroom or find writing a challenging task, this camp is for you! All are welcome. Apply here!
