Application for the 2020 Young Authors' Workshop
The 2020 Young Authors' Workshop will be held from July 6 - July 24, Monday through Friday, from 10:30-12, and 1-2:30 each day, and will take place virtually.
The camp is open to rising 9th-12th graders who are excited to explore a diverse range of genres, edit their writing in small workshop groups, and become a published writer. At the end of the program, students who meet the camp's requirements and expectations will be awarded a small stipend. Students from all over the Bay Area are welcome to apply, though priority will be given to students enrolled in SFUSD, particularly our partner schools. Priority will also be given to students with financial need.
Help us get to know you by filling out this application! At the moment, we are at capacity for the program, but have started a waitlist. Please submit your application and we will be in touch if space opens up. Thank you!
