We aim to create a warm, ambitious literary community at the Muse for our young writers. We offer a robust set of class offerings for teens and young writers. Right now, we have recently started our Fall Session. Our classes cover a range of materials for all writing levels. We provide tuition assistance for every class. Never let a financial ability limit your participation. All you have to do is select the option at check-out.


Muse Opportunities

Teen Fellowship

This program is open to any 10th or 11th grader local to the Hampton Roads area. Those selected have access to free creative writing classes and mentorship from professional writers. Applications for our 2022 session will open shortly.


We offer a number of opportunities for students to receive hands-on experience with us, one of the nation's largest literary centers. Our editorial intern just included with assistance on our literary journal, made in partnership with Norfolk Academy, called Just A Phase.


We offer a variety of teen-specific classes. We are currently in the middle of our fall course offerings. We offer something for everyone!


We regularly host teen readings (now virtually!) If you'd like to read at one, contact our Youth Coordinator Remy Smidt at
