Writer’s Workshop is a dynamic, interactive writing environment. Students share their own writing—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir, or anything else they are inspired to write—and support each other in their writing.
In Writer’s Workshop we build a community of writers: we support each other in creative inspiration, the writing and editing processes, techniques for expanding writing horizons, and analytical reading.
At the end of the semester, a digital magazine of students’ work will be shared with the Athena’s community.

- Although there is no age requirement, students in Writer’s Workshop are expected to be fully independent learners. They must have their own email accounts and will be expected to complete all work without parental support and have competent typing skills. They should exhibit the emotional maturity to read and discuss writing which may contain some “PG-13”-level content.
