The UNH Writers Academy provides young writers entering 5th Grade through 12th an opportunity to write, edit, and publish their own stories, poems, and plays. Several week-long sessions are offered during the summer, each geared toward a different age group. In addition to writing and editing, students meet and interview professional authors, work in small groups to share their writing and enthusiasm with other students, confer with teachers to improve their work, and learn what it means to be a writer.
