The Young Author’s Symposium
The Young Authors’ Symposium is a morning-long intensive writing workshop for fifth and sixth grade students. A lead facilitator sparks ideas from his or her own writing experiences during a preparatory session after which the students work individually and in groups to share their own ideas and the processes involved in putting words to paper. High school facilitators work with the younger students while area Language Arts educators attend their own workshop with the guest lead facilitator.
This year we are honored to have New York writer, singer, and storyteller, David Gonzalez, return as the lead facilitator for
