Badger Nation:  

This summer we will offer our second VIRTUAL writing extravaganza for high school students from Thursday, June 24, to Sunday, June 27. It is our hope that you will emerge from four days of VYWC as enriched, interconnected, & invincible as if we had been circling the bonfire on Summer’s Gale Farm.

As ever, expect to participate in over ten hours of intensive fiction, poetry, songwriting, creative non-fiction, and script writing workshops; exchange and critique manuscripts; attend interactive craft sessions; and meet one-on-one with your workshop leader. In addition to Moth storytelling, poetry slams, & open mic sessions, we will offer an agri-tutorial on gardening and environmental stewardship.

We are again offering adult classes. Teachers, writerly parents, and other aspiring authors are welcome to join us, and will be assigned to an adults-only workshop.

Students may apply via the Submittable platform on our Application & Fees page.
