The 2017 Youth Summit will be held in October 2017.
Writing for Peace hosts an annual Youth Summit to provide a safe place for young writers, artists, and activists (ages 18-30) to discuss aspects of peace, artistic expression, and activism, as well as the chance to engage with keynote speakers and develop their craft through educational opportunities. Our first summit occurred the last weekend of April 2016.
During the event, work and conversation is not shared publicly. Participants are offered the opportunity to remove work and comments before the summit is shared publicly. The 2016 Summit went public on May 10th, 2016.
