Youth Writing Experience

Teen Writing Programs & Young Writers’ Programs are held each summer throughout the province. They offer up to 14 youth in each location the opportunity to develop their creative writing skills with a professional writer as instructor. The workshops are held in partnership with local libraries and are offered free of charge to participants.

For teen programs, applicants should be between 14 – 18 years old at the time of the program they intend to apply for.

For young writers’ programs, see the program page for recommended participant ages.

Applicants to some of the programs are asked to upload a short sample of their writing and a paragraph or two about why they would like to come to Sage Hill.
