Two-day workshop for young writers ages 8-14
The New-York Historical Society and the DiMenna Children’s History Museum are proud to host a young writers workshop in partnership with Writopia Lab, a nationally recognized non-profit organization that has led workshops for kids ages 8 to 18 since 2007. This unique Historical Fiction Writing workshop will be co-facilitated by a New-York Historical Society educator, who will introduce the writers to many different themes related to the Civil War.
The New-York Historical Society offers DOE-approved Professional-Credit courses each July. These classes meet for 36 hours (Monday-Saturday, 10:00-5:00) and carry three credits that can be applied toward teachers' 30-and-above salary differential. Courses will be listed and registration will be available on the After School Professional Development Program's site when the summer course catalog becomes available, typically in late spring. Courses fill up quickly, so register early!
