Writing on the Roof

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. Thank you also to the Karma Bird House for sharing the magnificent, inspiring rooftop with YWP!
