Youth Writing Festivals
The Nebraska Writing Project sponsors two day long writing festivals; the Eastern Festival is for middle school students in grades 6-8, the Northern Festival is for grades 6-12. The goal of this initiative is to give students an opportunity to hone their writing skills in a collaborative setting and to build a community with fellow student writers.
In an attempt to involve students and teachers from across Nebraska, we host two sites annually. The 2016 sites are Gretna High School (east) and Stuart Public Junior and Senior High School (north). Dates, schedules, and registration information will be posted on the Nebrask Writing Project Blog, or see the Festival Brochure for registration details.
If you’d like to be involved with the Youth Writing Festivals either by bringing students or presenting, please contact the festival directors.
