Based in the Department of English at Montana State University, the Yellowstone Writing Project is comprised of teachers who write and writers who teach. YWP offers teachers immersive professional development experiences, hosts an annual writing conference, and sustains a community of writers. YWP celebrates student writing and students as authors, particularly with the Youth Writing Camp and the International Youth Silent Film competition.

Youth Writing Camp

The Yellowstone Writing Project's Youth Writing Camp is a multi-day "unschooled" writing workshop for youth entering grades 5-12. Campers will write in multiple genres and share their writing within a supportive community of peers and licensed educators--the Yellowstone Writing Project teacher consultants.
