SJAWP Novel Writing Program: Writer’s Salon & Workshop

Calling all teen writers who want a community with whom to share writing without the commitment of a full length course!  SJAWP is excited to launch its first Writer's Salon: a space in which students can write alongside other teens and workshop writing while making friends with other budding novelists.  Our Writer's Salon will meet once every three weeks for live zoom sessions that begin with a prompt and writing warm up followed by student readings of works in progress.  

We have built this space to allow students to stay connected to our Teen Writer's Institute programs and to experience the writing community offered by our Novel Writing Program.  There will be no set lectures or assignments; rather, in this course, students will sign up ahead of each session to workshop a piece of their writing and receive peer feedback in a process facilitated by our author in residence, Hannah Jayne.  Students who post their pages to our online discussion boards will also receive instructor feedback on all submissions.   Come join us and walk away with a polished piece of writing, a peer group connected by the common pursuit of a creative writing life, and a clearer idea of how to make writing fit into your busy lifestyle!

Registration fees include admission to our Super Saturday series, which include an author talk with Faith Gardner about her newly released novel, Girl On The Line, and two sessions of Page to Stage, our screenwriting course taught by Arcadia Conrad, director of the Cupertino Actor's Theater.  Students will also be invited to join select meetups with students in our Novel Writing Program.
