Spots are still available for young writers to attend the Winter Break Writing Workshop, part of the Young Artists and Writers Project at Stony Brook Southampton, from Monday, February 18, through Friday, February 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., each day.
The week-long workshop will pair professional writers with middle and high school students to develop and hone their fiction, poetry and personal essay skills. By week’s end, each student will have several pieces of completed work to submit or publish.
An additional writing workshop will be offered to coincide with the spring school recess from March 25-29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., each day.
Both week-long workshops will be held in Chancellors Hall on the Stony Brook Southampton campus. Student work from both workshops will be eligible for publication in the YAWP Ezine and for presentation in the “Sounding Our YAWP” event at Stony Brook Southampton in late April.
There is a fee of $525 per student, per workshop and partial scholarships are available. Registration is still open for both workshops. For more information and to register, visit www.youngamericanwritersproject.com or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
