If your child is signed up for Young Writers as a Homework Extension Project, or if your child just loves to write, then it’s time to get ready for the Mountain Area Young Writers’ Conference!

The free conference will take place on April 16, 2020 and brings together student writers from many of our mountain area schools. Parents and children will attend workshops and hear a presentation by a published children’s book author.

Between now and April, students will need to write and publish a short book of their own to prepare for the conference. These books will be presented to other students in a facilitated workshop on the night of the conference.

Young Writers Workshops
After-school workshops for young writers will begin on Tuesdays February 25 and will take place in Ms. Lane's classroom from 3:30-4:40 pm. Workshops will help students develop their creative writing projects in advance of this year's Young Writers Conference, or just for pure enjoyment of the creative writing experience.  Students can work on poetry, fiction or nonfiction, and the workshop will be led by a local published writer and experienced creative writing teacher. Notebooks and snacks will be provided.  For more information about the workshop, please email candacekearnsread@gmail.com
