A component of the Central Arizona Writing Project, YAWP Young Adult Writing Program (formerly Rl Txt) is designed to offer young writers a non-evaluative environment in which to explore the power of writing.
Offering time and inspiration, YAWP sessions support writers in a collaborative atmosphere as they interact with other youth authors and share works in progress. YAWP sessions engages young writers in crafting a variety of writing forms, such as poems, autobiographical sketches, heart maps, short stories, arguments, nature/science observations, craft secrets, and daily writing workshops. Each camper chooses a piece of writing for publication in the camp anthology.
YAWP is staffed by veteran K-12 English teachers who have completed CAWP's Invitational Summer Institute in teaching composition and critical literacy to become Teacher-Consultants.
