Description

Endicott College (Beverly, MA) will host its Third Annual Young Writers Workshop at its seaside campus, June 27-28, 2019, for area high school students interested in creative writing. In addition to sessions focusing on poetry, fiction, and playwriting/screenwriting, this year’s 2-day Workshop will feature new sessions on humor writing, young adult writing, and “Improv for writers,” a session taught by one of the College’s theatre arts professors. Participants, who must be entering grades 9-12 in fall 2019, will create and refine new work, learn how to give feedback to their peers, and receive tips on how to promote and publish their work. They will develop their skills in a fun, supportive environment. The Workshop welcomes both novice and advanced creative writers.

Participants will work closely with the College’s renowned faculty members. Charlotte Gordon is the author of Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley, winner of the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography, and two volumes of poetry. Dan Sklar is a two-time winner of Endicott's Excellence in Teaching Award whose poems have been published widely and whose plays have been staged at the Actors Studio of Newburyport and the Boston Theatre Marathon. Elizabeth Winthrop is the author of four novels: The Mercy Seat (Grove Atlantic, 2018), Fireworks and December with Knopf, and The Why of Things with Simon and Schuster.

Laurie Stolarz is the author of several popular young adult novels including the Dark House series, the Touch series, Project 17, Shutter, and Bleed, (all published by Disney/Hyperion Books for Children), as well as the bestselling Blue is for Nightmares series (Flux Publications). With well over a million books sold worldwide, Stolarz’s titles have been translated into thirty languages, been named on numerous award lists, including the Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers list and the Top Ten Teen Pick list, both through the American Library Association, and have been optioned for television. Her newest book, Jane Anonymous, was recently acquired by Wednesday Books/St. Martin’s Press, in a two-book deal.

Alena Dillon is the author of a collection of humor essays entitled I Thought We Agreed to Pee in the Ocean: And Other Amusings from a Girl Wearing Sweatpants (Bistro Books, 2015) and the forthcoming Mercy House (HarperCollins, 2020). Alex Davis has worked, performed, and presented with organizations across New England including Improv Asylum/Laugh Boston, Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Children's Chorus, World Music/CRASHarts, and the American Repertory Theater. He teaches Improvisational Comedy at Endicott.
