Submission season for Southeast Louisiana’s 2014 Scholastic Writing Awards is now open, and the University of New Orleans is ready to help. UNO and the Greater New Orleans Writing Project are set to offer a series of workshops to assist the region’s creative teens in preparing their submissions—or just improving their writing. Each workshop will be led by professional writers from the poetry, fiction, and nonfiction genres. MFA candidates from UNO’s Creative Writing Workshop will provide students with one-on-one tutoring to improve their manuscripts.
All students in grades 7 – 12 are welcome and may sign up for all three workshops. The workshops are free to attend, but space is limited. To secure a spot in a workshop, students need to register at www.GNOWP.org.
