Coming Soon: Applications for Bronx Loaf 2020!


Bronx Loaf is a Bronx-based, summer creative writing program for New York City teens. We are proud to be part of the city’s vibrant literary culture.

Founded in 2012 in the South Bronx, Bronx Loaf is a weeklong community writing intensive that brings high school youth from the Bronx and surrounding boroughs together to develop, craft and present their creative writing. Modeled after the famous Bread Loaf Writers Conference in Vermont, but adapted to inspire low- and middle-income youth here in our City, Bronx Loaf sets 45 youth each year on an inspiring path where they are encouraged by published authors to pursue their craft .

If you want a sense of what we do, check out our cool video from our one of past summers:

“I would say this program is a mecca for anyone who loves writing… Meeting other people who are as in love with writing as you are, and adults who are masters of the craft is awe-inspiring to say the least. Join, grow, and write!”

At Bronx Loaf you will find…


“Bronx Loaf allows you to get feedback on both your strengths and weaknesses as a writer from both a professional and other readers, enabling you to augment your skills.”


“It’s a great place to meet creative, like minded people. You learn a lot, you think, you make friends…it’s really a positive experience!”

Professional Writers…

“The one-on-one conferences are BEYOND insightful and helpful.”

Sharing of words…

“If you love writing, want to be a better writer, enjoy words of any form you should just join. Never be afraid to share something you have created. Attending this conference will make you view your work differently and feel proud of it.

…And a chance to publish YOUR work!

“It was an extremely wonderful feeling seeing my work in a published book”

  1. Hi Bronx Loaf,

    I am a teacher and the Arts Director at the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics. We have had a few students participate in your program in the past (with rave reviews) and I wanted to invite you to our first ever Arts Night that we will be hosting at our school on Thursday April 12th from 4 – 7 pm. The event is a celebration of the artistic works that our students have created this year and will showcase their accomplishments in the fields of fine arts, music, poetry/creative writing, dance, photography and drama. This would be a great opportunity for you to interact with our students and inform them about your program. If you are interested, we would love to have you. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to talk. Thanks and I hope to hear from you!

  2. Phenomenal tool to encourage young writers to spread their wings and get good advice on how to proceed with developing that yong persons talent. This film is well done👌

  3. My name is Perla my English teacher told me that I’m a creative writer and I believe that because I really am one. She told me that this is a good program so I decided to search it up. I was not expecting this 😂.
