2017 Portland Writing Workshops for Young Writers

After Portland's longest winter in years, there's sunlight on the way. That means it's time to plan for summer writing workshops for young writers in the Portland area.

Announcing three writing workshops for young writers, hosted at Attic Institute 

For 2017, we're tripling our efforts with three writers workshops for young writers in Portland--ages 11-21(ish)

MIDDLE GRADE WRITING CAMP: JULY 17 - JULY 29

Designed for writers entering 6th, 7th or 8th grades, the middle grade writing camp will help young writers re-engage with the written word during the summer. We'll focus on craft and voice, and delve deeper into the wonderful world of revision and peer review.

WHEN: July 17 thru July 29 (six sessions over two weeks, every Monday/Wednesday/Friday)

WHERE: Attic Institute (4232 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland)

WHAT TIME: 10 a.m. thru 1 p.m.

HOW MUCH: $215 for all six sessions (prorated discounts are available for students who will miss sessions due to scheduling conflicts)

HIGH SCHOOL WRITING CAMP: July 31 - AUGUST 18

Our high school writers have always driven the writing camp, and this year they'll have greater access to a college-style writing seminar. We'll explore passages from different pieces of literature, will work on generative prompts and revisions, and will create space for high-level critique and review of their work. 

WHEN: July 31 thru August 18 (nine sessions over three weeks, every Monday/Wednesday/Friday)

WHERE: Attic Institute (4232 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland)
