2023 Workshop! Day and Residential (Dorm) Options
The John Carroll Young Writers Workshop (for students grades 8-12) will take place on July 24-28, 2023, on the campus of John Carroll University, directed by award-winning creative writing faculty from John Carroll University.
Students participate in a rigorous and inspiring program that provides an introduction to the art and craft of poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction. In morning and afternoon sessions, students study with acclaimed writers, engaging in writing-intensive exercises designed to address the elements of craft: form, voice, character, image, scene, and setting.
After reading and discussing the work of established authors, investigating the strategies they use to craft their poetry and prose, students then write their own stories and poems. Then they participate in lively workshop sessions in which they discuss each other’s work with an eye toward revision. Over the course of the week, students have individual conferences with Dr. Philip Metres and the teachers about their writing, and then submit writing for the anthology, which is published and ready by the final day of the camp. On the final day of camp, families are welcome to attend the final reception and reading.

The Creative Writing Studio is a workshop-style summer intensive that challenges every young writer (no matter their current skill or experience level) to craft works of art that will make them proud to publish to their community, be it through literary magazines, writing competitions, publishing houses or social media. Experienced English teacher and budding novelist Mrs. Lindsey Galicki runs the studio with a skills-focused approach, helping students explore masterful writing that students can use to model their own work. During drafting, Mrs. Galicki helps students find their voice, think more boldly, take more creative risks and capture their audience the way they intend. After drafting, students are empowered to share their work with each other in a classic writer’s studio roundtable discussion, during which time students praise and critique each other’s work. Along the way, Mrs. Galicki throws in creative challenges that will push students to think outside the box, get out of their comfort zone and most of all – have a ton of fun writing and sharing with each other. On the last day of the intensive, family and friends are invited to the Literary Tea showcase, where students will present their most prized work in their portfolio, and we can all celebrate everyone in the intensive. The Creative Writing Studio is a must-have experience for every young writer.
