Juniper Young Writers Online



Juniper Young Writers Online looks for writers whose work shows curiosity and risk-taking, and who are eager to experiment with forms and ideas new to them, in the company of their creative peers.

Writing Packages for Juniper Young Writers Online 2022 is open now for registration! Programming will take place during the week of July 18-22. Summer Online Writing Packages offer teen poets and writers a self-directed journey into a week of the wild invention. Working independently, participants will gain insight to the creative writing process, with opportunities to learn from an extraordinary group of dedicated instructors and to interact with a community of peers who share their love of writing and social inquiry. Teen writers can register for our Craft Package or our Write-Along Package.

What you get with The Craft Package:

5 electives

Participants in the Craft Package will meet and interact with peers in five virtual Craft Sessions over five days, finding an opportunity to write together and share questions and insights. Sessions are led by Creative Writing Instructors. 

Inspiration for generating new work

Writing prompts and challenges are emailed twice a day. We’ll also facilitate ways for participants to virtually share their work and ideas generated from the daily Write-along. The Writer’s Life Talks give participants a behind-the-scenes view of the Instructors' work and creative processes, which always ignite new ideas and provide invaluable writing tips.
