Work with published writers, live on the University of Virginia campus, and join a visionary artist’s community. Take your writing where it’s never been before.
THE YOUNG WRITERS WORKSHOP of the University of Virginia, established in 1982 as the nation’s flagship program for young writers, enters its third decade of bringing together a community of writers from across the country and beyond its borders with a common purpose: to create a supportive, non-competitive environment where teenage writers can live and work together as artists. The faculty of authors and residential staff bring professional experience to the development of new talent. In partnership with nearby Sweet Briar College and its idyllic setting, the Young Writers Workshop has achieved a long-desired goal: to welcome its participants to a retreat space where writers can commune with each other, immerse themselves in creative activity, and fuel their imaginations through an innovative arts program.
