If your child is signed up for Young Writers as a Homework Extension Project, or if your child just loves to write, then it’s time to get ready for the Mountain Area Young Writers’ Conference!

The free conference will take place on a Thursday evening in late April and brings together student writers from many of our mountain area schools. Parents and children will attend workshops and hear a presentation by a published children’s book author.

Between now and April, students will need to write and publish a short book of their own to prepare for the conference. These books will be presented to other students in a facilitated workshop on the night of the conference. Help and information sessions will be held at Parmalee in December, January and February to help students write and publish their books.
