Reynolds Young Writers Workshop:

Every summer for more than two decades, talented high school students (current sophomores and juniors) have been welcomed to Denison University in Granville, Ohio, for the acclaimed Reynolds Young Writers Workshop. The workshop is an eight-day residential program that incorporates small creative writing workshops, group sessions with Denison creative writing faculty and notable visiting writers, and much more. Encourage your students to apply today!

Only 48 students get the chance to come to "The Hill" to participate each June. That means students experience small, intimate writing workshops and one-on-one interactions with people who have made writing their career. It's a great way to connect with a close-knit community of writing teachers, mentors, and peers from around the world.

This is your students' chance to work with award-winning authors whose work has appeared in publications like The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and SB Nation; who have published books; who care deeply about storytelling; and who love to teach.

The program runs from June 16–23, 2019. Financial assistance is available to families who need it, and information about the program is online at Applications must be submitted no later than Sunday, March 3, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. Your students can apply today!

Thank you for encouraging your students to consider this opportunity. If you or they have any questions, you can reach us at or at 740-587-6207.
