Emerging Writers Institute


2020 Emerging Writers Institute

Due to campus restrictions during the COVID-19 crisis, we will not be holding an Emerging Writers Institute in 2020. Our apologies. 

We’re happy to announce that we have expanded our Emerging Writers Institute to include rising 6th graders! We will have an Institute for those entering Grades 6 – 8 and another for those entering Grades 9 – 12.

During the week, students will have the opportunity to come to the University of Arkansas–Little Rock and work closely with experienced writers.

During the Institute, students will:

  • Find their voice as a writer.
  • Discover new tricks for developing a piece of writing.
  • Learn to develop characters in a story.
  • Collaboratively design & publish a book in one week.

For questions, please contact:

Director, LRWP
