“We want to give the students a great writing experience,” said Greg Graham, director of the Little Rock Writing Project. “This summer we will be working on characterization and developing characters in a story. The students will also interview the oldest person they know and write a piece on them.”
At the institute, students will find their voice as a writer, discover tips to improve their writing, and turn an ethnographic interview into an essay.
As a group, the young writers will collaboratively design a book of their best writing pieces from the weeklong workshop.
