CDWP Young Writers Programs

The Capital District Writing Project sponsors summer writing workshops for elementary, middle, and high school writers. These workshops are designed for young people who LOVE to write and enjoy collaborating with other writers. Workshop facilitators are experienced K-12 educators from the Capital Region. Our facilitators challenge young people to grow as writers in fun and interactive ways and within a supportive community.

All summer 2022 workshops will run July 11-15, 2022. We offer half-day workshops (9am-12pm) across all grade levels (ages 6-18). At this time, we anticipate offering all our workshops in person on the UAlbany campus.  This summer, we are also pleased to offer our first full-day workshop (9am-4pm) for high school students!

Here is what young people have said about our workshops:

  • “You’ve allowed me to realize everyone has their own voice in writing and I can confidently say that I may have found mine this year…As an aspiring writer, I know I still have lots to learn. I’m proud of the writer I have evolved into this year, and of the lessons I’ve learned about revision.”
     
  • “It's a great way to share your writing and meet others whose passion for the art runs as deep as your own.”
     
  • “I loved how all the students and staff were very supportive, and built strong connections with everyone.”
