A Penn Current article describes the new Summer Workshop for Young Writers at the Kelly Writers House. It begins:
This summer, Kelly Writers House will host its first intensive writing workshop for high school juniors and seniors. Directed by Jamie-Lee Josselyn, associate director for recruitment at the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing, the 10-day residential program, which will run July 9-19, is meant to inspire, energize, and empower young writers.
“For a number of years, we’ve wanted to open the Writers House up in the summer for high school students,” Josselyn says. “[We want to] give them a sense of what the space is like, what it’s like to be part of such a close-knit writing community.”
The program will enroll 20 students. Applications, due Friday, March 17, require a 300-word essay, high school transcript, teacher recommendation letter, and writing sample. An optional need-based financial aid statement will also be accepted.
