Due to COVID-19 and the variety of models for in-person and virtual learning being used by local school districts in Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland, Project Write will continue to offer virtual workshops until summer 2021. Young writers across the globe are welcome to join any workshop!
Second Saturdays Series
Workshops in poetry (Jan. 8 & June 12), reimagined fairy tales (Feb. 13), food writing (March 13), and comic book writing (April 10 & May 8) will be offered the second Saturday of each month. Young writers in grades 4-7 and 8-12 may register for individual workshops or the series. For more information, visit the Second Saturdays Series page.
Advanced Young Writers’ Workshop
For young writers who are serious about developing their writing, this advanced workshop is for small groups only to provide feedback on works-in-progress. Writers will meet with our Teacher Consultants and the same group of peers two Tuesdays each month from September to December.
Summer Young Writers’ Workshop, June 28-July 2 (We’re hoping to see you in-person, but will run this workshop virtually if needed.)
Our week-long workshop invites writers to develop at least one piece for publication in The Bloom, our print anthology, while learning from our Teacher Consultants and guest authors. If you register before December 31, 2020, you can lock in the low-rate of $300 for the week (a $100 discount).
College and Scholarship Application Essay Workshop
Offered each fall. If you don’t want to miss our next workshop, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Young Screenwriters’ Conference, October TBD, 2021 (We’re making plans for both in-person and virtual options.)
Previous professional screenwriters have included comics legend Joe Kelly and indie animation director Dash Shaw. Held in conjunction with Shenandoah University’s film studies department, we connect rising screenwriters and filmmakers with professionals in the industry!
Young writers who’ve attended previous workshops or parents who are registering more than one young writer are encouraged to contact us for discounts.
Scholarships are available for young writers with financial need because of our partnerships and grants from the Claude Moore Foundation, Nora Roberts Foundation, and Marion Park Lewis Foundation. Please visit our scholarship page or email us for more information.
