Join our 8-week program, held once weekly for 90 minutes for high school and middle school students. Learn to master the mechanics, grammar, conventions, editing, and more to build your expository and persuasive, evidence-based writing skills.
How is this different from our Writer's Workshop? Over the course of 8 weeks, students will learn the basic elements of grammar and style, and put that knowledge into practice. Sessions will focus on the building blocks of good writing and the process of editing and revision. Students will gain confidence and fluency in grammar and writing structure and will ultimately be challenged to produce a polished essay on a topic of their choice
This program span 8 consecutive weeks beginning the week of March 8, 2021.

This program will be led by Academic Director Giovan Alonzi. Giovan completed his MFA in Creative Writing at CalArts, where his thesis was awarded the Emi Kuriyama Memorial Thesis Award.
