Young authors invited to EOU Student Writers’ Workshop

Student Writers’ Workshop invites young authors to sharpen their pencilsStudent Writers' Workshop at EOU

March 1, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Writers in grades three through 12 are invited to register for the annual Student Writers’ Workshop (SWW) March 10 at Eastern Oregon University.

The SWW invites young writers, alongside their teachers and parents, to participate in a Saturday of workshops to produce various kinds of writing. When workshops wrap up at about 3 p.m., participants can share their writing in an open mic session. Young writers can then choose to revise and submit their work for inclusion in an anthology.

Registration is open now and costs $30 for each student. The fee covers the opening session, workshops and lunch in the EOU cafeteria. Teachers and chaperones attend for free. Continuing professional development units and graduate credit are available for teachers.

Since 1992, the Student Writers’ Workshop has served over 3,650 students at EOU, about 150 attendees each year. Attendees expand their experience with 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.

Support for this event comes from Eastern Oregon University and Soroptimist International of La Grande.
