Young Writers Academy
Established in 2007, YWA is a weeklong writing enrichment program for students in grades 1-12. Young writers eager to develop or extend their writing will discover new tools at the Young Writers Academy. Our instructors are Teaching Consultants recognized by the National Writing Project. They focus on building students’ confidence, community, and writing skills through student-driven learning.
Each year's course offerings are generated through young writers' ideas and interests. Join us this year to explore your life's moments, mystery, poetry, fantasy, dystopia, and even the college essay.
Come to campus at Penn State Harrisburg to kick off your summer. Challenge yourself to take your writing to the next level. See how far you can go!
