Publish Your Story. 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 any of Deep’s partner schools (listed in the form below) 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 writers who will give you the 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 the Ed Fellow at your school will be notified.
Block by Block
If you are a writer in public middle school or high school—ages 12–18—you are 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 live on Savannah's West Side or in surrounding neighborhoods and/or to those authors 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 Storytellers. Be a Writing Fellow.
The Deep 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

Bring Our Program To Your School. Be an Ed Fellow.
Deep’s (Ed)ucation Fellows are creative, innovative, and motivated full-time employees—at any of the 18 middle schools in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS)—who partner with Deep to give students and teachers a stronger voice in their community. These public middle school teachers collaborate on one of the largest project-based learning experiments in Georgia by coordinating Deep's Young Author scholarships at their respective schools and creating a lively dialogue with Deep about public education in Savannah. Ed Fellows have different backgrounds and curricular focuses but share three important qualities:
A deep appreciation for arts education and creative writing
A sincere belief that every student has the aptitude for excellence
An insatiable curiosity and a love of learning

Support a Young Writer. Be a Deep Patron.
Deep Patrons help kids write and publish their first stories. Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Botticelli all had patrons, and now, with your help, deserving young people in Savannah, Georgia can have patrons too. The cost for one full Young Author Scholarship to Deep’s award-winning program is only $144 annually, but with the help of our Deep Patrons, we can provide it at absolutely no cost to kids, parents, or schools. Deep’s Patrons make a monthly or annual gift to support young writers at a time when they need it most—middle school.
- You'll be prompted to select your gift and frequency. Remember $19/month sponsors a year's scholarship for one kid.
