High School Student Writers Have Chance at 6-Week Workshops

Beginning this week, the Santa Barbara Writers Conference will be conducting a new after-school creative writing program for high school students, SBWC executive director Marcia Meier announced Monday.

Classes will be held from 3-4:30 p.m. Wednesdays at Dos Pueblos High, 7266 Alameda Ave., and at the same time Thursdays at San Marcos High, 4750 Hollister Ave., and Santa Barbara High, 700 E. Anapamu St.

The six-week classes are free and open to any student interested in exploring creative expression through writing. If you know of a young writer who would like to learn from seasoned SBWC faculty/authors, have him or her check with each school’s English teachers, or call the Santa Barbara Writers Conference at 805.964.0367 for details.

SBWC in the Schools is possible because of generous donors and Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 829 State St.

The 36-year-old Santa Barbara Writers Conference is the nation’s preeminent gathering of writers and workshops. Its annual conference is scheduled for June 20-25 at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
