Students will improve their writing abilities by exploring several different writing styles. The weekly workshops will focus on narrative, descriptive, expository and persuasive writing, connecting those lessons with creative writing each week. A cumulative writing session will employ multiple techniques and styles learned during each session. Participants may attend as many or as few workshops as they like. Registration is encouraged due to space limitations, but it is not required.Joshua Mallow, AmeriCorps youth academic engagement mentor for the Center for Literary Arts, will facilitate the workshops.

The unique workshop will help enhance students' writing skills while exploring a world of creative writing that can be overlooked during typical classroom instruction.
