The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project (UWMWP) offers a morning workshop for aspiring writers aged 10-15. Young writers will work with an NWP teacher leader for a unique creative writing experience. With the stunning backdrop of the sculpture garden as a source of inspiration, the group will engage in a variety of observational exercises and exploratory writing activities. Participants will leave with a collection of prompts that correspond to the sculptures. Come meet and share writing and feedback with other like-minded young writers.

During this workshop, we will:
● Engage in a variety of creative writing exercises to inspire multiple genres of creative writing, including poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and more;
● Work with an NWP teacher leader in a small group setting;
● Learn a few foundational writing techniques used by professional writers;
● Make connections between the physical world, observation, and creative writing;
● And become inspired to continue using nature and observation to write creatively!
