CELEBRATION OF YOUNG WRITERS

GRADES K-12

ASAP! is calling all public, private, and home-schooled children in grades K-12 to participate in this inspiring literary project. Students are invited to submit a writing sample for a chance to share their work publicly and be published on the ASAP! website. A panel of judges will select exceptional pieces through a blind process where all names and schools are removed.

This year’s selected pieces will be featured at Pilobolus’s Five Senses Festival this summer – details coming soon.
