Description

WRITE RHODE ISLAND: A Writing Competition for Students Across the Ocean State!

Write Rhode Island is a creative writing competition sponsored by Providence's School One and Write Rhode Island writers for students grade 7-12.

Students' passion and interests are at the heart of their connection to literature. Write Rhode Island's aim is to encourage students to become better writers and to provide an opportunity for them to develop their own expressive voices and share their perspectives of the world.

WRITE RHODE ISLAND: TEEN WORKSHOPS!

The Newport Art Museum will host 3 Write Rhode Island workshops! Students will enjoy private tours of both historic buildings led by senior staff, identify works of art in the Museum to use as inspiration for short creative writing works facilitated by Write Rhode Island writers.

Workshops will be held at the Newport Art Museum on

Sunday, October 22, 1-3pm

Sunday, October 29, 1-3pm

Sunday, November 5, 1-3pm

Public, private, parochial or home-school students in Rhode Island currently in grades 7-12 are eligible to participate in Write Rhode Island. Though students are not required to sign up for a workshop to enter the competition, we hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity to visit and work in the Newport Art Museum galleries.

Visit Write Rhode Island's website HERE for more information and links to submitting works to the competition. Deadline for submission is December 10, 2017.

Winners of Write Rhode Island will receive prizes, awards and publication in a print anthology at a ceremony held at the Newport Art Museum. This anthology will be published in March and there will be several book launches, readings and celebrations.

So, spread the word to your friends and register today!!
