A rite of passage is a symbolic ritual of a person's transition from one status to another. To guide hopeful writers toward publication, the Write of Passage Teen Writers Workshop is a FREEworkshop for teenagers who want to become published writers.
Teenagers already in the 9th-12th grades will meet every Saturday in November with traditionally and self-published authors, journalists, bloggers, publishers and photographers to write, discuss, critique and learn about the writing process. The goal is to complete a 50,000-word fiction or non-fiction novel, play, book of poetry, essays, memoirs, etc., in conjunction with National Novel Writing Month and the national, I Love to Write Day!.
Upon registration, each young writer will receive a “Write of Passage” workshop booklet that’s packed with tips, lessons, writing strategies and writing prompts, an exclusive workshop t-shirt and the opportunity for their work to appear in our anthology, “Write on Red” that will be published by a national publishing house. Each young writer will receive a printed copy and will be able to purchase additional copies.
