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. Teachers incorporate community-building activities from the start in order to build a safe and fun learning environment so that everyone is comfortable writing and sharing their work. In the first several days of the workshop, not only do writers start many pieces, they look closely at models of similar writing as a way to learn about how published writers "craft" their writing. As the week progresses, the writers continue to experiment with writing, while the teachers incorporate goal setting, conferences, and revision into the daily activities. By week's end, writers get support in editing, publishing, and celebrating their work. In most programs, students will not only work with HVWP teachers, but also with educators at the host site who take the group on behind-the-scenes tours to touch artifacts, to explore secret places, and to develop a personal appreciation for where they are.
Programs available in Ulster, Dutchess, and Westchester; in Orange County, we have programs at Storm King Art Center and Museum Vilage.
