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 2021.
Second Saturdays Series
Workshops in historical fiction (Aug. 8), dream journaling (Sept. 12), horror (Oct. 10), memoir (Nov. 14), and point-of-view (Dec. 12). For writers in grades 4-7 and 8-12. 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.
College and Scholarship Application Essay Workshop
Learn what selection committees are looking for and draft your essay! For high school juniors and seniors on September 19 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Young Screenwriters’ Conference, October 17, 2020 (We’re making plans for both in-person and virtual options.)
Join keynote speaker and indie animation director Dash Shaw along with film studies professors at Shenandoah University.
Summer Young Writers’ Workshop, June 21-25, 2021 (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).
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.
