The Young Writers Program presents its fifth annual end-of-year reading featuring student writers who have participated in the program. Student writers were involved in one of eleven Young Writers Program projects held throughout the county during the course of the academic year including those at Branciforte Middle School, Brook Knoll Elementary, E.A. Hall Middle School, Louden Nelson Community School, Y.E.S. School, and Mountain Elementary School. Co-sponsored by Santa Cruz Arts Council and Santa Cruz County Office of Education, the Young Writers Program brings community volunteers into grade 4-12 classrooms to work on teacher-initiated writing projects. Student writing is then professionally published and made available at Bookshop Santa Cruz and other local bookstores.
This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Chairs for open seating are usually set up an hour before the event begins.
