A writing conference for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors!

At the Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference, 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. Find more details at www.washcoll.edu/ywc.
