Raising Writers

We’re all about Raising Writers!

At the National Writers Series, we are “raising writers” to help students express themselves, explore the world, develop their imaginations, and to think critically. Take a moment, and check out our Raising Writing programs: writing workshops, Battle of the Books, Front Street Writers at the Career Tech Center, and annual college scholarships! See the 2018-19 Front Street Writers journalism project on Line 5 here.
