High School Poetry Workshops Print

Every year, since the 1970s, the Academy of American Poets has held a summer creative writing workshop for high school students in New York City. Students attend six seminars on the subject of poetry, produce and critique original work in a classroom of their peers, and give a public reading of the work produced in the workshop. Academy interns who are currently enrolled in Columbia University's School of the Arts Graduate Creative Writing Program teach the workshops.

SUPPORT FOR THIS PROGRAM


The 2005 High School Workshop students gather together after a reading at Poets House, in SoHo

This project is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state arts council; by the Harold Taylor Fund; and with the generous support of New York University.
