Spend some time writing with our GWP Teacher Consultants!  Each of our events is held at a different location to inspire you. You can bring something you've already been working on, or you can plan to start something new.

FREE ADMISSION! No need to pre-register! Just see the details for each event below and drop-in!

These events are for youth, grades 3 -12, and teachers. Please note:
  • Parents/guardians are welcome to stay (and maybe do some writing of their own!).
  • Youth under the age of 16 may be dropped off if parent/guardian signs a release form.
  • Youth under the age of 16 who arrive with a teacher who stays onsite do not need a signed parent release form.
  • Youth aged 16 or over do not need a parent release form.

Wi-fi access and parking are available at all sites.
