“Richmond Young Writers was founded in the summer of 2009 at Chop Suey Bookstore with the intention of introducing young people to the joy of creative writing through workshops taught by professional writers in the community. A four week afternoon program held in the upstairs art gallery of Chop Suey, each week of the summer workshop culminates in a student reading of works-in-progress at the Byrd Theatre. In the summers of 2009 and 2010, Richmond Young Writers was thrilled to work with over 60 young people from 25 public and private schools in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield and Midlothian. We are now proud to partner with the Visual Art Center of Richmond and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for after school classes in the fall, winter and spring.”
