Welcome to an anthology of writing from Mt. Lebanon Young Writers summer session, 2016. You can browse work by clicking on the links to the right or by searching for an author’s name. Please feel free to leave encouraging comments for our writers! All comments are moderated so they may take a few days to appear. Enjoy!
Renamed the Young Writers Camp but continuing in the rich tradition of the Young Writers Institute workshop model, this summer we made a smooth transition to the Mt. Lebanon Enrichment Program.
Singer, songwriter and teacher John Young led a terrific visiting writer workshop and our Writing Marathon day found us writing all over uptown Mt. Lebanon. We hope to see many new and returning campers next summer!

Young Writers Camp 2016: A Three Voice Poem
I am Georgia, Sarah and Kristin
Everyone has a song to sing
A story to tell
Three voices conducting
Memories, Neighborhoods and Maps
Our symphony’s first notes sounded on Mango Street
With solos and spotlights
On Bio Poems
And the simple notes of the Essence of an Object
Inspiration, Music and Voice
Were found in uptown Mt. Lebanon
Twenty-six voices played in unison
As we grew into a symphony of writers
As each unique instrument
Called and responded
One perfect note
Two perfect weeks
