The Young Writers Workshop of the University of Virginia, established in 1982, brings together a community of writers with a common purpose: to create a supportive and noncompetitive environment where teenagers can live and work as artists. Every staff member has a commitment to writing. The faculty, professional authors interested in developing new talent, bring practical experience to the workshop setting.
The staff counselors, who are graduates and undergraduates in related fields, broaden our instructional program as assisting workshop teachers and elective course instructors. The administrators, also writers, are dedicated to nurturing the artistic vision.
