Hudson Valley Writing Project to offer workshops in July

The Hudson Valley Writing Project at SUNY New Paltz will offer two “place-based” writing programs in Dutchess County in collaboration with the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site and the Friends of Clermont.

“Project Write: Writing into History” and “Where Art, History, and Nature Meet!” are one-week writing enrichment programs for students ages 12-16 wishing to explore nature, history and art.

Each of the programs are led by two Hudson Valley Writing Project teachers working with on-site educators.

“Writing into History” will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 7-11 and “Where Art, History and Nature Meet!” will take place July 21-25 during the same hours.

Tuition is $225; scholarships are available. Visit /hvwp/ywcamp.html for more information or contact Diane Rawson, Hudson Valley Writing Project coordinating director of youth programs at 845-943-8437.

The Hudson Valley Writing Project is a professional development organization whose purpose is to improve the teaching of writing and to promote literacy development in all levels of education.
