WRITING ON THE ROOF 
is YWP's series of FREE writing workshops on the rooftop of the Karma Bird House, 47 Maple Street, Burlington, VT (YWP's  home base on the edge of Lake Champlain). Designed as small-group gatherings, Writing on the Roof allows young writers to hear directly from established authors, journalists, and other professionals, exchange ideas, and receive one-on-one feedback in a supportive, informal atmosphere. Questions? Contact Susan Reid, on the site at Reid; by email: [email protected]; or (802) 324-9538. Writing on the Roof workshops are free, thanks to our generous donors.
