Do you know eighth-, ninth- or 10th-grade students who love to write? Encourage them to sign up for the Young Writers' Workshop, July 7-11.

Sponsored by the English department with support from the Beach Museum, the Young Writers' Workshop provides five days of creative writing workshops with the guidance of experienced K-State faculty and graduate students.

"By inaugurating our new Young Writers' Workshop, we hope to inspire creativity and confidence in a new generation of writers," said Katy Karlin, associate professor of English and program director.

"The workshop participants will get the chance to imagine new worlds through language, meet professional writers and current college students, and learn that Kansas State is a place where creativity happens," Karlin said.

Enrollment is free but limited to 15 students to ensure close attention to students' creative work.
