Join us Friday, April 8, 2022 for the fourth annual High School Writers Conference.
This conference is for you.
If you’re a high school student who loves writing poetry, arguing politics, or composing epic threads on Twitter, this annual conference is for you. If you’ve dreamed about journalism, law, nursing, or working for your city, and want to know how people in those professions use writing every day, this conference is also for you.
Our keynote speaker will present an opening talk that will inspire you in your writing. Then choose from sessions on poetry and performance, legal storytelling, science communication, news reporting, and more.
The first Rutgers-Camden High School Writers Conference was held April 13, 2018. This program is presented by the Writers House and the Office of Civic Engagement, Rutgers University-Camden.
