It is open to teachers grades 7-12 and others interested in creative writing for at-risk youth. Maximum attendance: 40. Reservation required by July 19.

Barton will demonstrate recently designed lessons based on the works of several Alabama Writers Hall of Fame inductees’ works, giving you a chance to test drive these with your own writing.
