Commissioner Arrington Hosts Annual Write to Rise Workshop

Starting June 1, Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. will host the third annual Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop and Competition in conjunction with Friends of Wolf Creek and Opus Cultural Lifestyle Magazine. The workshop and subsequent competition are available on a first-come-first-served basis to middle and high school students in Fulton County.

Workshop sessions will be held at Wolf Creek Library (3100 Enon Road) on the following Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.: June 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. Free lunch will be provided.

“The written word opens up so many possibilities for young people able to maximize their communications skills,” said District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. “This workshop hopes to demonstrate to our young people what is possible when words on a page come alive.”

The Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop and Competition (WTR) helps young writers develop an enthusiasm for and expertise in their own writing. The program also offers participants guidance in the development of building their portfolio and exposing them to the professional editorial and publishing process.

The workshop series will include authors, writers, and industry professionals who will help guide participants through a comprehensive preparation program.

Participants are automatically entered into the WTR Competition for a chance to win first, second and third place scholarships and prizes. The writing submissions will be accepted during the course of the workshops, and the awards event will be held in August 2019.
