The Hudson Valley Writing Project invites students to participate in the summer 2014 Young Writers' Programs at SUNY New Paltz.

During the "Writing into History: Exploring the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt Historic Sites" program, available for students ages 12 to 16, participants will take a trip to the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center in Hyde Park. Writers will explore the fundamental questions of human rights from many perspectives and writing styles. The group will also hike National Park Service nature trails and learn about Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, and the Vanderbilts through special tours of the historic sites.
