School One's Write Rhode Island program is open to young writers from grades 7 to 12

YOUTH WRITERS

Our Write Rhode Island programming is open to young writers in grades 7-12. From our annual flagship creative writing contest, to after-school classes, to an intensive summer program, we offer students the opportunity to find their voice and explore their creativity, while strengthening their writing skills. Classes change regularly, so check back to see what’s on tap next!

Annual Writing Competition

Each Fall, in collaboration with Goat Hill, School One offers a short fiction competition for Rhode Island students, grades 7-12. Write Rhode Island provides students opportunities throughout the state to work with professional writers and to be published in a high-quality print anthology.

Dungeons and Dragons Writing Class- Virtual
Evan Flesicher

If you're reading this, consider yourself cordially invited to a game of Dungeons & Dragons. (What is D&D? Dungeons & Dragons is a collective storytelling game played amongst friends with dice telling you what you can and can't do. And it's fun. A lot of fun.) What makes our session unique is that we will be taking a break over the course of the game to give players the space to write, illustrate, and expand the story of their character on their own terms, with the hope that -- at the end of our mini-arc -- the story will continue.

Grades 7-12 | 6:00 - 8:00 PM | March 15-April 26 | $25 (Scholarships available)

All classes are virtual. A link will be sent before the first class.

Scholarships are given out based on financial need. To request an application, please contact Diana at (401) 331-2497 or dianac@school-one.org.
