North Shore Young Writers Conference
The conference for high school students of the greater Boston area will feature a combination of writing workshops and readings led by published mentors. This year we are pleased to offer mentorship by authors Tom Averill, Michelle Falkoff, and January O'Neill. The workshop will culminate in a group reading of student work created during the two days. Participants can experiment with different styles of creative writing, including poetry, fiction, and personal essay. Students will work both one-on-one and in small groups with their mentor. Registration is $80 and includes lunch both days and continental breakfast on Saturday. Scholarships are available thanks to a grant from the Beverly Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
