The Confident Writer


In this fun, intensive WITS session, students will explore a variety of genres and writing styles as they create an original writing portfolio. Students will share their work as they write it, offering supportive suggestions and inspiring each other to push their work even further. We’ll focus on writing as a process, deeply engaging with revision to help each student become a stronger, more confident writer. At the end of the workshop, parents and family will be invited to hear students read their favorite pieces.
