Hudson Valley Writing Project

Young Writers Program: Exploring New Paltz, Then & Now

Exploring New Paltz, Then & Now

Monday, July 24 - Friday, July 28
9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Led by the region's finest teachers, the Hudson Valley Writing Project offers children and teens unique learning experiences at local cultural and historic sites, nature preserves, and college campuses.

In one adventurous week, young writers ages 10 - 14 will tour historic stone houses, explore a wildlife sanctuary, and spend time on a working farm as they learn and write about the remarkably rich history of this land and its people.

Students work with experienced, passionate teachers in a supportive community where they follow their interests and imaginations. On the final day, they share their writing in a closing reading and celebration. 

Tuition is $295. Scholarships are available. Registration and scholarship information here.
