2017 Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference
Date: July 12 - July 15
For the second annual Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference, we welcome back Leslie Harrison, Julie Iromuanya, and Julie Marie Wade as our creative writing workshop faculty!
At the Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference, rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors can experience the literary community that Washington College has to offer and discover the many opportunities available to undergraduates: internships and funding grants in publishing, writing, and editing; a host of student-run publications; and the chance to serve as editorial screeners on Cherry Tree, Washington College’s national literary journal.
At the Young Writers’ Conference, students can take intensive creative writing workshops in a choice of three genres (poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction). They can discuss literature at the college level with current English department faculty. They can attend professional readings at the Rose O’Neill Literary House. They can even take a class in how to draft effective college admissions statements.
ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER BY JUNE 15 IN ORDER TO ATTEND.
