Alice Hoffman Young Writers Retreat

The Adelphi University College of Education and Health Sciences, in partnership with best-selling author and Adelphi graduate, Alice Hoffman ’73, presents the Adelphi University Alice Hoffman Young Writers Retreat. This annual program is an intensive writing workshop where high school juniors and their teachers can experience the power of arts-based learning.

This year The Alice Hoffman Young Writers Retreat is going virtual. We will be creating an online community for teen writers from around the country to workshop their writing with well-known authors and artists. We are excited about the lineup of guest authors and will  be sharing more in the weeks to come. We have some big surprises!

The Retreat will take place online from July 27 to July 31, 2020. 

The online application deadline is June 1, 2020.

Students at Writers Retreat

The five-day summer retreat features creative writing workshops with Adelphi faculty, accomplished writers and artists, and English education graduate students. All admitted students receive a full program scholarship.

Please join us as we build a community of writers, artists, and educators dedicated to putting the arts back in education.
