Youth. Voices. Writing. These words come alive at the Ohio Writing Project Youth Writing Camps. Imagine a week where young writers fill classrooms, notebooks, and the campus with their words. The Ohio Writing Project (OWP) High School Writing Workshop is a week-long teen writer's workshop OWP specifically designed for teen writers in high school who are interested in exploring writing craft, building writing confidence and sharing their voice across various modes of writing.
