The Teen Weeklong Workshop invites young poets to step into the living tradition of poetry. Creative and curious students from all corners of the globe convene at Poets House for a marathon of poetry reading and writing, responding and connecting to works of contemporary poetry and creating their own poetry portfolio. The week is a ton of fun, filled with a myriad of poetic games and exercises! The core of the workshop is led by Poets House resident educators who facilitate discussions and lots of group bonding (as well as individualized attention). We will also have esteemed local poets as guest instructors throughout the week.

Full scholarships provided for students with need. A celebratory reading takes place Friday, July 20 at 6:00PM.

The Workshop is application-based. Applications should be sent to Jordana Weiner at jordana@poetshouse.org. Please send your name, grade level, and indicate whether or not you will require financial aid (full scholarships are available to all who need them). Include, in the body of your email, a statement of interest and, as a pdf attachment, a sample of your writing (up to but not surpassing three poems). Optionally, you many also send the following: a resume or recommendation(s) from employers or teachers.

Applications are due EXTENDED TO June 30th by midnight.

Funding for Poets House's teen initative provided by The Thompson Family Foundation. This program also made possible in part through a partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
