The 30th Annual North Shore Young Writers Conference
Two days of intensive writing, workshops and readings with professional authors
The conference will feature a combination of writing workshops and readings led by published mentors. This year we are pleased to offer mentorship by authors Tom Averill, Michelle Falkoff, and January O'Neill. The workshop will culminate in a group reading of student work created during the two days. Participants can experiment with different styles of creative writing, including poetry, fiction, and personal essay. Students will work both one-on-one and in small groups with their mentor.
The Beverly Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, awarded the Waring School a grant to fund scholarships for the upcoming North Shore Young Writers Conference.
