CCSWP 2015

2014 was quite a year for the CCSWP!

2014 CCSWP Anthology
We had, once again, our largest summer institute ever. We published another amazing anthology of student work (which you can view and/or purchase here). At our anthology celebration, we were lucky enough to have a visit from author Padma Venkatraman. She told our young authors about how she began writing, and encouraged them to write frequently and with passion.

Speaking of our anthology celebration, I had a conversation with one of our parents that reminded me of how important the CCSWP is to our young people. 

This father told me that when he was looking for something for his daughter to do over the summer, he was having a bit of a struggle. If his daughter was passionate about soccer, or softball, he said, there were plenty of options.

There were travel teams and camps, but that's not what his daughter was interested in doing. "There are not many options for kids who are passionate about writing," the father told me. "That's why this program is so important." 

Padma Venkatraman
I have been thinking about what that parent said to me since October. I cannot wait to get started with the 2015 CCSWP. Here is some important information. 
  • We will be back in Wethersfield for 2015
  • There may be two or more locations as well
If you have any questions about CCSWP 2015, please call or email us.
