From Jennifer Boyden:

Take your writing to the next level! Come to San Juan Island to discover for yourself why more writers and artists live here than any other place in Washington.

At the Young Authors Program, you’ll be inspired by the award-winning authors you’ll work with, the awesome beaches, funky cafes, and the forest trails that surround this safe, quirky town. Here, you’ll dive into generating and discussing your writing, explore, connect to a community of writing peers, and have fun.

Come discover our island for yourself—and what you have to say while you’re here. Our team of writers and editors is ready to help you push your current passion and skills, learn new techniques, build a community of creative writers, and take your writing to the next level. Come write with us!

Thanks for helping to get out the word out!
