Writers ROC! is a new program aimed at supporting young writers who live in the city.
Writers ROC! is a partnership between Writers & Books and the Creative Writing program and Parent-Teacher-Student Organization (PTSO) at School of the Arts (SOTA).
The goals of Writers ROC! are:
- to encourage Rochester city youth writers to participate in Writers & Books’ SummerWrite programs (including scholarships and other supports, e.g. transportation)
- to boost awareness of SOTA’s creative writing program
- to provide advocacy and mentorship for successful application to the SOTA Creative Writing program.
