BYU Young Authors Academy

Come spend the week with locally and nationally accredited authors, receive instruction and work directly with University English department faculty, and meet other young, aspiring writers such as yourself. During the week you will have the opportunity to speak with and get your books signed by visiting authors and illustrators, stay in campus housing, and sign up to take two unique writing electives tailored toward your writing interests.

Provided electives are as follows:

- Creating Believable Tales and Villains: explore ways to create believable conflict and evil motives.
- Flash Fiction: Find how to write fiction without getting yourself stuck in the beginning, middle or end of a story.
- Boom, Pow, Wow!: Learn to write your heroes and heroines into greatness, not just cape-wearing characters.
- Breaking News: Put your investigative skills to work, as you learn to ask questions and gather evidence about what you are wanting to write.
- Mix and Match: Improve your writing skills by learning and trying different genres of writing. Express your writing through song lyrics, essay, poetry and more to help your creativity grow in new directions.
- Worlds of Wonder: Discover new universes created through writing, and find how to build your own as you create adventures, magical worlds, and new homes for your readers to explore.
