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.
