• Do you know a girl currently in grades 8-11 who considers herself a writer, who engages in writing in her spare time, and who goes above and beyond on her creative writing assignments?

    If so, encourage her to consider Columbia College’s fifth annual Serious Young Writers Workshops for High School Girls so she can take her writing to the next level.

    Workshop Dates: TBA 2019

    Workshops are open to girls who will be in grades 9-12 during the 2019-20 academic year and classes are held on campus.

    Who We Are | 9 am - 12 pm
    Writing Poetry about People and Places
    Dr. Ray McManus
    Worlds of Wonder | 1pm - 4pm
    Fantasy and Sci-Fi Writing

    How Do I Apply?

    You can apply online via our application. We ask that you submit a writing sample; guidelines can be found in the application. Applications will be reviewed within two weeks of receipt and accepted on a rolling basis until classes fill.

    Enrollment is very limited, allowing for small classes and in-depth, personalized feedback.
