LA GRANDE, Ore. February 23, 2017 – Writers in grades three through 12 are invited to register for the Oregon Writing Project’s Student Writers’ Workshop (SWW) at Eastern Oregon University Saturday, March 11.
The annual conference for young writers brings students, teachers and parents together to 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.
Registration is $30 and includes the opening session, workshops, lunch in the EOU dining hall and the anthology. Teachers and chaperones attend for free. CPDU’s and graduate credit are also available.
Since 1992, the Student Writers’ Workshop has served more than 3,500 students. The workshop 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. Students also benefit by visiting EOU’s campus and picturing themselves as potential college students.
For more information or to register visit www.eou.edu/engwrite/student-writers-workshop or contact Nancy Knowles, professor of English/Writing, at 541-962-3795 or email@example.com.
Support for this event comes from EOU and Soroptimist International of La Grande.
