The Young Writers Workshop at Kaskaskia College is a two-day program designed to give high-school students the chance to explore and develop their talents in creative writing.

During the workshop, students will participate in sessions on subjects such as stories, novels, poetry, songwriting, screenwriting, and playwriting. And they will explore genres ranging from serious drama to humor, science fiction, fantasy, and beyond.

Published and awarded writers will also perform readings of their work during the workshop.


The workshop’s lead faculty member is Josh Woods, Associate Professor of English (Kaskaskia College), and assistant faculty include creative writing graduate students Mandi Jourdan (SIUC) and Chris Watkins (DePaul). Together, the workshop faculty have a wide range of publications, awards, editing credentials, and performance experience, across a variety of creative writing forms and genres.
