Young Adult Writer’s Workshop and Reader’s Theater

The Young Adult Writer’s Workshop is Going Virtual

Young people with and without disabilities are invited to join our virtual workshop where you’ll learn how to craft interesting stories from your own life experiences and develop your performance skills. We will have two groups— one for those in middle school and one for high school and beyond. The workshop will culminate in a live stream performance.
