Winter Writing Camp

Click here to register for our second annual Winter Writing Camp! Winter Writing Camp Logo-1 (2)

Join us for an enjoyable, high-energy day of writing and storytelling Saturday, February 16, 9:30-3:00, at St. John’s Episcopal Church and the main library on Wick Ave. Word play, blackout poetry, writing the fantastical, adding mystery to your story, free writing and many more topics and activities will be on the menu, as well as cookies & open mic for those who would like to bring a poem or story to share.

Seats are limited so register soon, but if you register and are unable to attend, please let us know right away. The deadline is February 1 or when all seats are full.

The Winter Writing Camp is co-hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County, with sessions for all writers, from kindergarten up, and all levels of experience. Participants under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Free registration includes lunch. Free childcare all day for children 5 and under. It is allowable for adults to bring small, non-disruptive children into sessions, but we hope that offering childcare will give adults a moment to enjoy uninterrupted time with older children.

If you have a disability, please let us know, when you register. We’d like to the make the day as enjoyable as possible for you.

We will meet at 9:30 at St. John’s, where each participant will receive a schedule and list of sessions. Please park in the lot at St. John’s or the library, or behind St. John’s on Walnut St. by the MVR. As we will be walking between buildings, weather-wise outerwear and footwear are recommended.

Questions? Let us know: Info@LitYoungstown.org.

Join us in thanking our sponsors who make this day possible: the Nathalie & James Andrews Foundation; Harrington, Hoppe & Mitchell, Ltd.; the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley; Crist & Rosemary Weaver; the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Youngstown & Cultivate: a Co-op Café. Thank you!

We are looking for workshops for kids in elementary school (who may have an adult with them) and middle school, as well as teens only, or teens and adults. Workshops that include a writing prompt and time to write are preferred, although we will consider other kinds of sessions such as editing, plotting a novel, or researching history.
