Does your child love to write?

The Junior Writers' Workshop will immerse them in the writing process. They'll use age-appropriate computer illustration and word-processing programs to create an original story.

They'll learn about content/ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency and the basic conventions of writing through individual and small-group instruction by trained instructors and Susquehanna creative writing majors.

We'll nurture your child to grow and improve, encouraging confidence and communication skills in an engaging environment. 

Experience with computers and familiarity with word processing is recommended.


New! JWW Afternoon Special Topics

Write On: Exploring Genres

We are delighted to offer the addition of an optional afternoon session to writers who have completed grades 6 through 8. Grow your talents as a writer by exploring a variety of writing genres in more depth. Investigations will include flash fiction, mystery, action adventure, and more! Following a similar format as our morning workshop, you and your mentor will select a piece from your week’s portfolio to polish and then share with the group for feedback. Join us for more fun as we write on into the afternoon!
