Invitation to Originality: Find Your Voice at the Young Writers and Artists Festival

The William McKinley and Jessie M. Osborne Writing Center at Hathaway Brown has a central goal: to help girls find their voices. Once a year, the Center presents the Young Writers and Artists Festival, an immersive workshop open to Cleveland-area high school girls. The festival, October 30-31, offers opportunities to grow in poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. Each section offers students the opportunity to pursue their creative passions and develop their craft by working with a talented and accomplished professional writer or artist in an inclusive setting with other invested young writers and artists.
