Annual Reading of the Jeanette Sarkisian Wagner Teen Writing Workshop
June 3 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us to celebrate the imagination and work of our teen writers at the annual reading and reception. All welcome. Pre-registration suggested.
The Young Artists and Writers Project (YAWP), which is run through Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Creative Writing, led this workshop in fiction, essay, poetry and other genres. Students advanced their writing skills by participating in constructive group critique. You can also see some student work at yawpezine.com. This annual event is a public performance of the work the students created throughout the year.
The workshops are underwritten by generous donations from the Friends of Jeanette Sarkisian Wagner, a long-time advocate of youth literacy programs.
