In partnership with the Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts

Ages 12—16

In this immersive workshop in partnership with Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts, the Long Island-based nonprofit summer day school for the arts, budding authors write poetry, monologues, and dialogue to find and hone their creative voice. Participants visit the Usdan campus working with students in a similar program to develop writing, respond constructively to one another’s work, and have fun outdoors. The program concludes with professional actors reading select pieces from the young writers’ work in a final performance.

PARTICIPANTS WILL:
• Meet other young writers from across New York State
• Understand the elements of drama • Improve critical thinking by responding to fellow students’ work
• Develop a sense of themselves as a creative artist
