Young Authors Collective (Denver)

$520.00 Members
$520.00 Non-members

The Young Authors Collective (YAC) is a group of Denver area teen writers who meet in person to engage in a literary community and write. Weekly meetings are held Wednesdays from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Lighthouse Writer’s temporary location. We’ll follow all COVID-19 restrictions and guidance. YAC members must attend all meetings and respond to emails and/or text messages from the instructor and Lighthouse staff in a timely manner.

YAC is an ideal place to create long-lasting connections and develop as a writer. We’ll look to marginalized and traditionally underrepresented writers for examples and prompts as well as to expand our notion of the literary canon. Members of YAC build their skills across forms, including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and hybrid/experimental; by workshopping (giving and receiving feedback) their pieces; and engaging in craft lessons. They are also expected to meet deadlines, contribute to the group blog, and set writing goals. YAC members may also participate in Lighthouse community-based projects, which have previously included collaborations with established adult writers and teaching younger writers at the Free Creative Writing Lab.

Applications are required! Apply here by August 29.
