It’s that Time of Year!
Sarah DeBacher | September 14, 2015
In just two days, the Scholastic Writing Awards for 2016 will open!
Students in grades 7 – 12 will be able to submit their creative writing for a chance to win up to $1 million in scholarships, publication, and a trip to Carnegie Hall in New York City.
We at the Greater New Orleans Project are excited to announce our 4th year of hosting the Write@UNO workshops, which help students prepare their work for submission to the Scholastic Writing Awards.
If you (or someone you know) is a writer in grades 7-12, join us for help getting started, revising and editing drafts, and just generally being inspired. Professional writers will lead interactive craft classes in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. MFA candidates from UNO’s Creative Writing Workshops will offer small-group and one-on-one feedback sessions. We’ll have chocolate! CHOCOLATE AND WORDS, PEOPLE! 🙂
The dates for this year’s FREE workshops are September 26th, October 24th, and November 14th. Seating is limited, so register today.
See you at UNO!
