Celebrating the Written Word

2023 Summer Creative Writing Intensives Are Now Live

for teens who LOVE to write! July 17 – August 4

We’re truly looking forward to working with our phenomenal teen writers for our 11th Summer Intensive season. New instructors, new workshops, and tons of time to write. Plus, the fabulous inspiration of working with other teens who love to write as much as you do.

Join us on the beautiful Drew University campus for one, two, or three weeks from July 17 – August 4.

This two-hour, week-long program is chock-full of writing games, wacky prompts, and time to sink into a favorite book just to read.

Seasoned writers will be challenged by story starters unlike anything they’ve seen in school. Reluctant writers will find TWC’s interactive games and prompts an irresistible invitation to start creating. Our collaborative, energetic environment will lay the foundation for kids to let loose and let the words flow. Let WordSMASH spark a love of writing and reading this summer.
