Thank you for your interest in the Capital District Writing Project's Young Writers Workshops! These workshops are designed for young people who love to write and who enjoy collaborating with other writers. Workshop facilitators are gifted and experienced K-12 educators from across the Capital Region. Our facilitators challenge young people to grow as writers in fun and interactive ways and within a supportive community.

All our workshops will run July 11-15, 2022. We offer half-day workshops across all grade levels. At this time, we anticipate offering all our workshops in person on the UAlbany campus.

This summer, we are also pleased to offer our first full-day workshop for high school students! In collaboration with the New York State Writers Institute, we invite talented high school writers to apply to participate in this incredible opportunity. Facilitators will lead young writers in carefully designed writing activities, while local acclaimed authors will also visit to give readings and engage in craft discussions.
