The August Wilson African American Cultural Center is excited to bring back our 4th Annual Youth Writers Camp!

We invite you to attend an informational kick-off session on February 18, 2021. This special pre-camp session will give parents and students the opportunity to learn more about the Youth Writers Camp curriculum for 2021, provide them an opportunity to meet AWAACC staff, and ask questions of our amazing educators who will be instructing each monthly session. Youth Writers Camp is suitable for middle and high school age students.

The Youth Writers Camp curriculum addresses current events, including topics related to social justice, while at the same time keeping August Wilson’s literary legacy as a core objective. All camp sessions will be virtual and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. During each session, time will be allotted for discussions, reading, writing, and sharing; *allowing students to freely express themselves in a nurturing artistic environment.

All registrants for this important kick-off event will receive an email with a Zoom link and instructions the day before and day the of session. The kick-off session is expected to last one hour from 6-7pm.

Youth Writers Camp tickets will go on sale February 2, 2021.

We look forward to seeing you!

*All participating students are expected to submit an original piece of writing at the end of the workshop session(s).
