Course for Young Writers: Write to Print

March update: This course is currently underway. Check the Company of Writers web site for their summer offerings. Write to Print will likely be offered again in the fall. Let them know if you're interested.

I'm excited about this class for teens: Write to Print, Wednesday evenings starting March 4 in Westport, CT. I'll be co-teaching with Jotham Burrello of Elephant Rock Books.  

The goal of this workshop is to complete a short story or essay to be submitted for publication. Over the course of eight weeks each student will draft, revise and polish her piece until it shines, with support from peers and teachers at every step. 

This course is offered by The Company of Writers, a new outfit founded by Yale Summer Writers' Conference director Terry Hawkins.

If you know a high school student who loves to write and would like to aim for publication, click over and check out Write to Print.
