Write-alongs

The Write-alongs are sets of writing prompts and challenges that guide participants through a daily writing practice. They are a chance for young writers to put into practice the lessons, techniques, and craft elements they have been learning throughout the week, or to simply write and explore on their own. The Write-along materials will remain accessible to participants after the program has ended.

Write-alongs will drop into participants' inboxes at 10am and 5pm (EDT) each day, totaling in 10 self-guided writing sessions for Week One of the summer program, 4 self-guided writing sessions with a synchronous write-in option for Week Two of the summer program, and 4 self-guided writing sessions + 4 self-guided writing sessions with a synchronous write-in option for the winter program.
