About the Event:
The SC Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities is an amazing resource for the state’s young writers. They offer a 2-year residential high school program and 2 summer programs.They’re a public residential high school located here in Greenville. Students live on campus but pay no tuition (there is a meal plan cost but they offer significant need-based financial aid). 12 students have received $10,000 Portfolio Awards in the national Scholastic Writing Competition. 8 writers have been named U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts, an annual honor bestowed on only 20 high school seniors nationally. In the past decade, 30 Governor’s School writers were recognized as YoungArts National Finalists.
Megan Baxter, a writer, artist, and the field liaison in the admission department for creative writing will be on hand to chat and answer any questions you may have.
