Event Series Event Series (See All)

Our Young Writers’ Institute (YWI) sessions will take place June 24-July 3 from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm at the University of Pittsburgh! Registration is open to rising 4th-12th graders through June 3rd, 2024. The YWI is hosted by the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project.

Since 1989, WPWP’s Young Writers Institute (YWI) has offered young people exciting and engaging environments to explore writing. Our outstanding staff includes certified classroom teachers, esteemed writers, and advanced writing students from regional colleges and universities.

Specific activities vary from year to year and from one class to another, including a broad range of genres and experiences geared to generate rich writing. This may include poems, autobiographical sketches, short stories, plays, memoirs, guest authors, walking field trips, and much, much more.

At the end of the Institute, families are invited to celebrate as students read their best work from their own copy of a published anthology. Our Institute is best suited for students who are eager to attend and who want to write for fun.
