A group of young writers work with watercolors in a cross-genre studio session at the Juniper Institute for Young Writers.

Hear what young writers have to say about their time at Juniper

"It was incredibly refreshing to meet a whole host of young writers who I immediately clicked with. Juniper offered me with a support system for the future to fall back on whenever I need an extra boost of confidence (whether it be in my personal life or with my writing). All in all, I learned a lot about myself as a writer and even more so about myself as a person." —JIYW Participant
