The Confident Writer

This intensive WITS session is designed to build confidence in middle school writers. By writing and reading daily, we’ll discuss what makes writing succeed, and we’ll use these prompts to help us put our own thoughts down on the blank page. Using the college creative writing workshop as a model, students will help peer review each other’s work in a supportive environment, and we’ll spend a lot of time learning the tools of strong revision. Students will develop their writer instinct, gain confidence, and improve public speaking skills, all while having fun with writing projects. At the end of the workshop, parents and family will be invited to hear students read their favorite pieces, and students will leave with their own writing portfolio.

Students entering 7th Grade to 10th Grade (Ages 13 to 16)
