Each year, the Carnegie Center invites young women in grades 9-12 to apply to a series of intensive workshops focused on self-expression taught by experienced women writers. Six sessions held on Saturdays during February, March, and April 2022 will incorporate creative writing exercises in various genres. The program also includes a mentoring component for elementary school girls, publication in the anthology chapbook, and two optional public readings.
The Young Women Writers Program and application process are offered free of charge, funded by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky.
