Celebrating 20 years of inspiring kids to write, Humanities Tennessee hosts the 2017 Tennessee Young Writer’s Workshop. It’s a residential week-long experience for kids in grades 8 - 12 taking place July 9 - 15 at Cumberland University in Lebanon. Students don’t have to be expert writers; all they need is an interest in creative writing. The Young Writer's Workshop week includes sessions in numerous writing genres, including poetry, song writing, screen writing, short stories and comic writing. Visiting authors, songwriters, poets and others will share their experience. Cost for the week is $650 (day student cost is $450). Application deadline is Friday, June 16.
