Young Authors' Studio

Young Authors' Studio

ASU's Young Authors' Studio is a free writing series for kids in grades 5-12, held at ASU's Polytechnic campus over seven Saturday mornings during the fall 2017 semester.

Upper-division ASU students in Professor Wendy Williams' project-based English course Mentoring Youth Writers will guide kids through fun writing activities, with each session having a special focus. 

This series will culminate in a public performance and writing gallery on Dec. 2.
