2010-07-12, Young People's Summer Writing Workshop

Monday, July 12 – Friday, July 16, 2010

Our Young People's Summer Writing Workshop will provide a relaxed, supportive and structured environment in which young people entering grades 4-12 who are strong writers will further develop and enhance their writing skills. Taught by New York State certified teachers, students will creatively explore subjects of their own choosing and will learn practical techniques for developing a topic, writing a draft, revising their work and editing on the computer. Teachers will focus on the use of writing conference feedback as a writer's tool for revision. The week culminates in the publication and oral presentation of student work. This workshop runs from Monday July 12th, through Friday July 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuition is $250 for one week.
