Emerging Authors Workshop

Fall 2016 - Winter 2017 Schedule

 

Instruction and Inspiration

The Emerging Authors Workshop is an intensive creative writing program that integrates instruction and inspiration. Whether you’re looking ahead to college essays, want to improve skills, or simply love writing, this class is for you! Each class has two instructors, who are trained educators as well as published authors themselves. Small class size allows for individualized attention, critiques and instruction. Classes also include visits from popular, young adult authors, both virtual or “in person,” designed to inspire and motivate.

The Emerging Authors Workshop infuses students with a passion for the art of writing.
