Emerging Writers Institute gives youth chance to become published authors

UA Little Rock’s Emerging Writers Institute offers middle and high school students a chance to work with experienced writers from the university’s Little Rock Writing Project at a week-long camp June 25-29.

The program for students entering grades 6-8 will be held 9 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. daily. Students entering grades 9-12 will meet 1:30- 5 p.m. daily.

“We want to give the students a great writing experience,” said Greg Graham, director of the Little Rock Writing Project. “The end result of our time together is a professionally published anthology of the students’ writing, which includes a photo, a bio, and a selected piece of writing from each student. It’s exciting for them to see their work published in a book.”

The registration fee for both camps is $125. Registration for the Emerging Writers Institute is available online.

The Little Rock Writing Project is supported in part by the National Writing Project and the UA Little Rock Department of Rhetoric and Writing.
