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.

Each workshop will run July 13-17, 9am-12pm, virtually, using secure platforms. Find descriptions of the workshops, supports and materials needed, and the instructors at
