Summer Writing Workshop
FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGES 15-20

New Youth Connections* is a teen-written magazine
published seven times during the school year. It is
distributed in public high schools, libraries and youth
centers in the city, and has a readership of
approximately 250,000. To apply for our Summer
Writing Workshop, please fill out an application form and mail it

Our summer workshop is demanding.
No prior journalism experience is required,
but you must be willing to commit your-
self to a rigorous schedule. We will meet
Monday through Friday for six weeks. You
will be shown how to create personal nar-
ratives, spend time “on the street” as a
reporter and learn public speaking skills.

Dates and Times: The workshop runs Monday to
Friday from June 30th through August 8th. The hours
are from noon to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
You must be able to attend every day.

Deadline: May 16, 2008

Cost: This application form is also the application for a
scholarship to the workshop. If you are selected, you
will be awarded a complete scholarship to cover the
entire $800 cost of the workshop. You will not have to
pay anything.
