Urban Teen Writing Workshop

Morningside Teen Writing Workshop is a twelve-week intensive workshop for writers in two age groups twelve to fifteen and sixteen to nineteen. The writers in the group are taught the elements of fiction writing. The main purpose of the group is to provide necessary feedback to other writers prior to submitting to agents and producers following a tested and proven format. We also address anti-bullying and coping with various school and community challenges.

Workshop Feedback.
We all need someone outside the world we've created to look at our work and be sure others will see on the page what resides in our hearts, rattles around in our heads and at times paralyzes us from moving forward.

Workshop Revision.
All writers must revise in order to streamline their storytelling techniques and tell the best possible story. This workshop will provide support as well as the discipline necessary to finish your work. We all want a do-over on any given day of our lives. It does get better. It will get better. You are not defined by your past mistakes. You will not be defined by who you are. Readers can learn from your experiences through your writing.

Community Support.
Publishers are distributing creative works in different formats, and we're on the forefront of this shift in the publishing world's idea of distribution and branding. We're a community of fellow writers, editors and publishing professionals who have traveled a similar journey just outside the expected norm. Join us and share your voice with the world.

It's really good to know that there are resources out there like this for our children. Teens often need an outlet for their talent and don't know where to turn. We think it's also great that you are addressing the issue of bullying. Thanks so much for sharing this!
