The Napa Valley Writing Project and Advanced Learner Programs and Services (ALPS) is excited to announce that, on June 2nd from 1-5 p.m., we will host the 1st Annual Napa Young Writers Festival at COPIA. This free event is open to students of all ages and their families. We will be celebrating amazing student authors throughout the Napa Valley Unified School District who have published novels, scripts or illustrated stories through our program. This will be an amazing opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments and experience their inspiring voices firsthand. Student authors will be on hand for book signings along with celebrated published authors, screenwriters, songwriters and poets such as Juliet Bell, Lisa Brown, Mark Homer, and Cathy Trachok. Students will have the opportunity to meet these writing professionals during the event through participation in writing workshops and lectures, as well as book signings.
Proceeds from book sales at the event will help even more young writers participate in the program this fall as we continue to expand this exciting creative writing program in our schools. Families will have the opportunity to learn more about the program and how to get their child involved.
