WRITE TO RISE - Coming again in Fall, 2019!
Fall, 2019 (Offered Tuesdays from 4-5:15pm, September 24-December 3)
The Literacy Center is proud to host WRITE TO RISE - a creative writing class for aspiring young authors.
Students who participate in WRITE TO RISE will:
- draft, write, revise, and edit their own original stories
- illustrate their stories, using drawing, painting, collage, and/or photography
- produce hard-bound copies of their own books
- be invited to present their books at an event held at SDSU, which parents can also attend
WRITE TO RISE Program Fees
The cost for 10 sessions is $150. Families who need additional financial assistance will be invited to complete our financial aid form after their child(dren)'s acceptance into the program. However, very limited offers of assistance will be granted for our enrichment programs.
The online WRITE TO RISE application (linked below) must be completed by a parent/guardian. The deadline for this application is Tuesday, September 10 at midnight (PST).
WRITE TO RISE Program Acceptance
We can accommodate up to 20 students in our classroom space and will notify parents/guardiants by September 10 if their child has been accepted into the program. Should the need arise, we may add an additional section of WRITE TO RISE so that more students can participate.
Parents and guardians of children admitted to WRITE TO RISE will be required to sign our SDSU Literacy Center Enrichment Program Agreement Form.
