Writers Well Youth Fellowship Retreat

Writers Well Youth Fellowship begins with a four-day workshop on the campus of Converse College for black girls ages 14-19 currently living in or attending school in Spartanburg County. This overnight retreat, open to eight girls, will nurture young female voices in spoken word poetry and other writing genres through writing and performance workshops. During the retreat participants will stay in Converse College dorms and eat meals with Converse food service. There will be guest speakers, round tables, and workshops on such topics are technical and professional writing.  Following the retreat, participants will be mentored by faculty and staff throughout the year.  The submission process takes place in the Winter/Spring.  The submission process for this year is closed.  To be notified when the submission process is open, complete email writerswellblack@gmail.com to be added to the email list or like Writers Well on Facebook and follow Writers Well on Instagram
