LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Writers in grades three through 12 are invited to register for the annual Student Writers’ Workshop (SWW) at Eastern Oregon University Saturday, March 14.
This conference for young writers includes a selection of workshops where students, teachers and parents produce various kinds of writing. At the end of the day, participant work is celebrated in an open mic session and writers can revise and submit pieces for inclusion in an anthology.
A $30 student registration fee includes the opening session, workshops, lunch in the EOU dining hall and the anthology. Teachers and chaperones attend for free. Continuing professional development units and graduate credit are also available.
Since 1992, SWW has served approximately 3,200 students through the Oregon Writing Project. 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 the anthology. Students also benefit by visiting EOU’s campus and picturing themselves as potential college students.
Support for this event comes from EOU, Soroptimist International of La Grande, Phi Kappa Phi and the Oregon Community Foundation.
For more information and to register visit www.eou.edu/owp or contact Nancy Knowles, OWP director, at 541-962-3795 or email@example.com.
