Write to the City

Calling all poets, activists, and aspiring educators for YCA’s Write to the City (WTTC), the freshest summer camp in Chicago!

Over one hundred young writers from all corners of the city and across the country come together for one week of nonstop art. Students take daily field trips within Chicago’s arts scene and rich cultural landscape, exploring visual, performance, and literary arts, building community, and developing a body of work through workshops led by world-class poets and artists. WTTC is a fee-based program, with scholarships available to qualifying students.

Write to the City will return in Summer 2017! Check back here for info or add yourself to our mailing list by emailing Program Coordinator Bayana Davis at bayana/at/youngchicagoauthors.org.
