LA GRANDE,  Ore. – Writers in grades three through 12 are invited to register for the annual Student Writers’ Workshop (SWW) Saturday, March 12 at Eastern Oregon University.

The SWW is a conference for young writers where students, teachers and parents participate in a selection of workshops and produce various kinds of writing. At the end of the day, participant writing is celebrated in an open mic session and writers can revise and submit their work for inclusion in an anthology.

The $30 student registration fee includes the opening session, workshops, lunch in the EOU cafeteria and the anthology. Teachers and chaperones attend for free. Continuing professional development units (CPDU’s) and graduate credits are available.

Since 1992, the Student Writers’ Workshop has served approximately 3,350 students. The event provides the opportunity for students to build on their enthusiasm for creative writing, work alongside students and teachers for whom writing is a passion, and learn to see themselves as published writers through contributing to an anthology. In addition, students benefit by visiting EOU’s campus and picturing themselves as potential college students.
