32th Annual Conference for Young Writers

  • YW
    This conference is for students who like to tell stories, scary stories, funny stories or stories about what they did or where they have been. Students can come learn how to capture those stories on paper. Presenters at the Conference for Young Writers will teach students different writing styles and techniques to help students create an ear-catching story. These sessions will give students a chance to generate a creative story. Writing can open a lifetime of opportunities for students and it is a lifelong skill for them to have.
