The Young Writers Camp offers a two-week program (Monday through Friday, 10am-1pm) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We offer workshops in slam poetry, fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, mystery, song-writing, poetry, memoir, and screen writing! Young writers work with professional writers, professors, teachers, and undergraduate interns! Grades 8-12
In addition to attending camp and working with accomplished writers in the community, you will:
- Work one-on-one with a writing mentor
- Have your work collected in a YWC Anthology
- Give a public reading of your work in a celebration of writing on the evening of the final day of camp

It's really exciting to see teenagers become unafraid.
Every year, our young writers compile their work into a single camp anthology. You can read anthologies from past years using the links below.
