We at the Cape Cod Writers Center are happy to announce a tuition-free program designed to enhance the literary skills of Cape Cod students in grades 7 through 12. Entitled “Tomorrow’s Writers Today,” the program is an outgrowth of our 27-year-old summer Young Writers Program held during our annual summer conference.

Like that program, Tomorrow’s Writers Today provides students with an opportunity to attend Saturday workshops with published authors and journalists who will oversee their work, share concepts and provide insights into the realities of professional writing, literature, journalism, sports writing and communications. Our March and May sessions were very successful. Our next one is scheduled for Saturday, November 3, 2012, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM at the Barnstable Intermediate School in Hyannis. Critically-acclaimed novelist Heidi Jon Schmidt will teach fiction writing, and former Cape Cod Times Reporter and teacher at Cape Cod Community College, Jim Kershner, will teach non-fiction writing.

For more information call 508-420-0200 or email writers@capecodwriterscenter.org.
