Last Call: Join Us at the WNY Young Writers’ Studio Celebration of Writing

I’ve been offline a great deal over the last few weeks, wrapping up my school year and gearing up for the start of our new season at the WNY Young Writers’ Studio. We have some exciting things in the works, and I’m looking forward to meeting and working with a bunch of new writers and teachers this year!

This Saturday, teachers and writers and parents and administrators from across our region will be gathering at Pinnacle Charter School to share what they’ve learned during their year-long fellowship with the WNY Young Writers’ StudioPlease consider joining us for the morning, sharing what you’ve learned about writing and teaching, and getting to know those who are a part of our program.
