It is time to get kids excited about reading and writing! Students who like to tell stories, scary stories, funny stories, any kind of story can come learn tips on how to generate a great entertaining story, poem or create characters. Presenters at the Conference for Young Writers will teach students writing techniques to help them enhance their stories. We encourage students to read and write as it can open a lifetime of opportunities for them.

Schools can register groups of students and parents can register their students on their own. Students will attend three hands-on learning sessions pertaining to an area of writing. The day will start with Peter Bloedel, Professor of Theater, musician & juggler. Presenters are very excited to pass on their knowledge to students.
