Sinclair Community College’s English Department is hosting the second annual Jack Bennett Youth Writing Festival on Saturday, April 5, 2014, and homeschoolers are welcome to attend these fantastic workshops!

The first session begins at 10am, an the last session ends at 3pm. And it’s FREE.

Award-winning Sinclair faculty — poets, novelists, essayists, performance artists, and short story writers—will be facilitating sessions for 6-8 and 9-12 graders. They are offering an exciting array of sessions encompassing writing poetry to college-applications.

This year, special guest artists from Metaphorically Speaking will offer workshops for both age groups in writing and performance skills.

In addition, a session for high school teachers on preparing secondary students for writing in college will be presented from 10-1:30 that day.

You may register on the day of the event in the loggia of the Sinclair Library, Building 7.

This event is FREE and lunch will be provided. Last year lunch included pizza, fruit and bottled water and this year will probably be similar.

The session for High School teachers may be of interest for parents who are homeschooling teens who plan to attend college.
