About

Salt Lake Teens Write (SLTW) is an award-winning writing mentoring program offered by Salt Lake Community College Community Writing Center and The City Library. Its launch begins in the beginning of the academic school year in September and ends in May.

SLTW offers opportunities for teens in 9th-12th grade, interested in the world of writing and share this experience with a mentor who has a background in the writing field. Both teens and mentors meet once a week for approximately 1-hour and explore writing in creative, educational and practical ways that fit into the student’s life. Writing workshops are also scheduled throughout the year where mentoring teams are encouraged to attend.

At the end of the academic school year we encourage mentoring teams to put together a writing portfolio and submit to our annual anthology where they can see their works published.

SLTW 2016-2017 is now accepting applications online by June 30th, 2016. Find our online application here: http://www.slcc.edu/cwc/salt-lake-teens-write/index.aspx#app
