Young Writers Storytelling Workshop to be held May 18 in Marquette
The Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association (UPPAA) will host its first-ever full-day workshop for young writers on May 18 in conjunction with the 2024 UPPAA Conference.
The Young Writers Storytelling Workshop is open to U.P. fifth through twelfth graders who want to improve their writing craft and learn from established authors. The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Peter White Library, 217 N. Front St. in Marquette.
“The workshop will run in parallel to UPPAA’s main conference, but the sessions will be aimed at a youthful audience who are beginning their writing journeys,” said Rehema Clarken (Hancock, MI), who is the workshop chair. “We are proud to grow our network of UP writers by starting this track for a new generation of authors.”
During the workshop, four award-winning U.P. authors will work with the young writers on skills such as building conflict, creating cool characters and establishing a setting.
