Be a Deep Author.

Stories are pictures of ourselves. They show our communities who we really are and demand courage to share them.

Young Author Project
If you are a middle school student—grades 6–8—and attend one of Deep’s partner schools, you are eligible to apply for a fully-funded scholarship to our eleven-week after school creative writing program, the Young Author Project. In our program, you will be connected to passionate writing mentors who will help you find your skill and confidence to become a fearless storyteller and published author. If you’re interested in the Young Author Project, fill out this form, and Deep staff will reach out with next steps.

Block by Block
If you are a writer in public high school, you’re eligible to apply for a fully-funded scholarship to our year-long creative community engagement program, Block by Block. Preference will be given to writers who have completed at least one semester of Deep’s Young Author Project, although all enthusiastic storytellers are welcome to apply. If you’re interested, have your parent or guardian fill out this form, and the Deep staff will be notified.

Write with Young Artists. Be a Writing Fellow.

Deep’s writing fellows are a fun, vibrant community of writers who give Savannah’s young people the skill, bravery, and passion to write and share their stories. Outside of our workshops, they support each other as mentors, writers, and friends. Our community members come from diverse backgrounds—authors, poets, aspiring and professional writers, journalists, college professors, graduate students, select undergraduate students, teachers, retired teachers, business professionals, creative professionals, and other literature-lovers—but must possess these very important qualities:

  • A personal identity as a creative writer (fiction writer, poet, journalist, literary essayist, etc.)
  • A sincere appreciation for the craft of writing and reading
  • An insatiable curiosity and a love of learning
  • A desire to share that love of writing and learning with others
