CELEBRATION OF YOUNG WRITERS
ASAP!’s 18th Annual Celebration of Young Writers empowers students to share their love of writing with the world. Public, private and homeschooled students from across Connecticut are invited to submit for a chance to be recognized for their outstanding work, and read their piece in front of a live audience. The Celebration of Young Writers stage is a place where student voices are amplified, and their passion for writing can be shared with the world. 2023 top selected works will be presented at the Spring Hill Arts Gathering (SHAG) Festival on Friday, June 23 2023, and shared through ASAP!’s website.
Celebration of Young Writers was inspired by ASAP!’s objective to foster children’s creativity and imagination in the literary arts. It was established with the help of Ellen and Frank McCourt, Ann and Denis Leary, and Susanna Salk.
Submissions closed April 3.
