About Writers of Westmoreland – Young Writers Institute 2016

Dear Parents/Families of Students Rising in Grades 4th -12th:

This summer Franklin Regional is pleased to host the 3rd annual Writers of Westmoreland, Young Writers Institute. Writers of Westmoreland (WOW), in partnership with The Western Pennsylvania Writing Project and the University of Pittsburgh, allows aspiring young writers to explore multiple genres in a supportive, stimulating environment. Writers of Westmoreland is for students rising in grades 4th-12th who like to write and who want to develop their craft in a community of writers. Institute highlights include: visiting writers, writing marathons, a collaborative community workshop environment, small group settings, and publication in a digital anthology which will be posted on the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project’s Young Writers Institute web page. The Institute is open to students in all surrounding districts and creates a wonderful opportunity for Westmoreland and Allegheny county young writers. Each Institute culminates with a reading celebration of writing by students and teachers!

Teachers of Writers of Westmoreland are comprised of Fellows of the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project who possess a unique passion, drive, enthusiasm, and knowledge of writing!
