Shared Worlds is a residential world-building and creative writing program for high school students. In small groups, participants construct a world; they then write stories set in those worlds. Additionally, professional guest writers offer writing instruction and also meet individually with the students and provide a written critique of their work. In this small-scale, supportive and encouraging environment, Shared Worlds promotes collaboration and creativity and encourages the next generation of speculative fiction writers. July 14-27. 13-17.
