Academy for Writers and Entrepreneurs
What is Academy for Writers and Entrepreneurs?
Academy for Writers and Entrepreneurs (AWE) is a program from Write Local designed specifically for students in middle and high school who want to become better writers, critical thinkers, and leaders. Students will try various thought experiments to stretch their minds and encourage out of the box thinking. Participants will learn peer review techniques and practice peer review with each other in class. Plus, they will identify a problem and, through an independent creative writing piece and a team business plan, propose a solution to this problem. This class encourages students to see connections between creative writing and academic writing as well as between writing and entrepreneurship.
