your word Teen Creative Writing Residency will be held from July 19 through Aug 1 2015, offering 21 participants an extraordinary opportunity to explore and expand the power of their individual voices through writing workshops. The program will take place at Atlantic Center for the Arts, an artists’ community on the east coast of central Florida.

ACA’s your word teen writing residency is for teens ages 14-18 and offers teen writers a wonderful opportunity to study with top notch Master Writers while exploring their creativity in a nurturing environment.

The Residency: Students will join three Master Writers-in-Residence, one in each of the following genres – Poetry, Fiction, and Creative Nonfiction/Memoir. Teens will select their focus genre, where they will spend the most time, but there also will be opportunities to explore the two other genres. Scheduled recreational activities include evening events with guest writers and readings, a trip to New Smyrna’s beaches, writing workshops, day trips, as well as movies and art workshops. Atlantic Center for the Arts’ Community Arts Manager, Ren Morrison will facilitate the program, and chaperones will be on-site 24-hours a day throughout the program. The residency provides mentorship by Master Writers as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with peers.

Facilities & Housing: Atlantic Center for the Arts is located on 10 acres of pine and palmetto forest, representing the interaction between nature, environment and creativity. Nestled within a 67-acre ecological preserve, the campus is connected by raised boardwalks. Students will reside in two buildings containing 28 single occupancy housing units (4 handicap-accessible) furnished with double bed, private bathroom, work desk, small refrigerator, and linens. Atlantic Center’s award winning studio complex includes a dining hall, digital media lab, library, administration building, and a visitor center & gallery. Click here to read more.
