Cooper Street is a workshop series for our neighbors in the Camden, South Jersey, and Philadelphia communities. Workshops may run one day, six sessions, or anything in between.

The most successful workshops have a clear topic or focus, provide beginning or intermediate writers with tools to improve their writing, introduce additional resources that participants can pursue on their own, and allow participants to walk away with something they’ve created. 

In your application, please include:

  • The proposed length of your workshop
  • The age group and/or level you intended to teach
  • The focus (i.e. the business of writing, introduction to poetry, etc)

Please send applications as an attachment (.doc, .docx, or .pdf only) to writers@camden.rutgers.edu with the subject line “Cooper Street Application.” Apply for Fall 2017 by June 30, 2017. Click the link to download the application.
