2016 Rising Writers Workshop

After last years successful Rising Writers Workshop, Write by the Rails in conjunction with Woodbridge High School will be bringing another round of workshops and keynote speakers for high school students around the Northern Virginia area.



This year’s keynote event will be:

Staying true to your art: When writers go off to college, they confront so many choices—majors, minors, courses, activities, organizations—and they don’t all choose writing as a major. Don’t lose your craft as you engage other disciplines. Hear from current college students and graduates about the ways they embraced writing through their educational journeys. They will present original readings, personal experience, and advice, followed by Q &A.

With breakout sessions on topics such as:

Poetry and Art
Expanding your social media presence so you can be read
Reliability in Writing

Writing What you Know

And Many More!

Stay tuned to this page for a full schedule and author lists in the coming weeks!
