Our Celebration

Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky will begin with the Fall 2014 Teen Writers Day Out on Thursday, Oct. 16, and wrap up at the 2014 Writing Eastern Kentucky Conference on Saturday, Nov. 8.

Our goals for Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky will be to spotlight the writers of Eastern Kentucky and to celebrate writing throughout Eastern Kentucky. Our celebration of writers and writing in Eastern Kentucky will include conversations about writing; creating poetry, fiction, and narratives; and having fun with writing.

The celebration will include three rounds of activities and each round will include three prompts: creative writing, word fun, and writing conversation.
