JOIN OUR COMMUNITY OF WRITERS! 

The Hudson Valley Writing Project is delighted to offer morning workshops for students and adults at SUNY New Paltz on Feb. 20, 2016.  

The region's finest teachers provide creative inspiration to write and share your work in a relaxed, supportive setting. 

FOR STUDENTS AGES 7-10:

CHARACTERS COME TO LIFE
A good story starts with a well-developed character. Learn to develop your character by writing a character sketch. Introduce your character by creating a mask or puppet and your character comes to life!

WHO ARE YOU? WHAT MAKES YOU TICK? 
Come discover what makes you unique! Drawing inspiration from published authors as well as others in the group, we will create our own life stories.


FOR STUDENTS AGES 11-17:

LET YOUR IMAGINATION GO WILD
In this workshop, we will look at different writing genres and then write, taking on the voices of others and representing ideas from many perspectives, some familiar  and some very different from our own.

HEADFIRST INTO POETRY
In this fast-paced workshop, we will use fun exercises and models of writing in a carefree and spontaneous atmosphere. Come experiment with words and sound, memories and imagination!


FOR ADULTS:

A TIME FOR WRITING
How can we create more space in our lives for writing? Together we will explore models and mentor texts in different genres and then plunge into writing and sharing our own stories. Feel free to bring your own notebook and pen or laptop.
