July 20-24, 2020 (grades 6-8) | July 27-31, 2020 (grades 3-5)
The Junior Writers' Workshop is designed for students who enjoy writing and would thrive on a full immersion in the writing process.
- Use the creative writing process in conjunction with age-appropriate computer illustration and word-processing programs to create an original story
- Learn one-on-one or in small groups about content/ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency and the basic conventions of writing
- Work with Susquehanna creative writing majors to develop and extend their skills
- Gain confidence and communication skills in an engaging environment
The workshop's focus will be on nurturing students to grow in the writing process and moving their individual talents and abilities forward in a positive direction, not on producing a polished, published final piece of work.
Workshops are open to students who have completed grades 6–8 or students who have completed grades 3–5. Each group is limited to 15 students.
Morning sessions are held from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. daily, and an Afternoon Special Topic will be held for grades 6-8 from 1–3:30 p.m.
