Young Writers

Mt Lebanon Campus, 2017

Welcome to an anthology of writing from Mt. Lebanon Young Writers Camp, 2017. You can browse work by clicking on the student writing dropdown menu above, or search by student first name.

Renamed the Young Writers Camp but continuing in the rich tradition of the Young Writers Institute workshop model, this summer was our second year with the Mt. Lebanon Enrichment Program.

Older and younger writers collaborated beautifully on group poems and projects and our Writing Marathon day once again found us writing all over uptown Mt. Lebanon. We hope to see many new and returning campers next summer!
