Scarsdale Young Writers’ Workshop Returns for 3-5th Grade Students on November 17, 2018

YWWScarsdale Young Writers’ Workshop (YWW) will return for its 24th year on Saturday, November 17, 2018, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, at Scarsdale Middle School. All Scarsdale third, fourth, and fifth grade students and residents are invited for this exciting event to meet award-winning authors, sports writers, journalists, bloggers, illustrators and more. Students experience real-life writing activities in a small group setting, as well as gain a better understanding of a day in the life of a writer.

Registration for YWW will open Sunday, October 28, 2018, and run through Monday, November 5, 2018. Links to the catalog, additional information about workshop leaders, and the registration are available through the Scarsdale Parent Teacher (PT) Council Website at https://www.scarsdaleschools.k12.ny.us/Page/24353

Brooklyn native, Gabriel Gale, creator of Ages of Oz, will preside over this year’s Keynote address. Gale’s fantastical and epic expansion of the Oz universe was conceived ten years ago after Gale graduated from The Cooper Union with a Bachelor’s in Fine Art. He then went on to receive his M.A. in Architecture from Columbia. After deconstructing and rebuilding all of the magic, characters, objects and settings from L. Frank Baum’s original 14 Oz books, Gale created a world of his own and fit it into 1000 years of Ages of Oz History. Mr. Gale’s fantastical world stays true to Baum’s intentions while breathing life into countless Oz characters.

YWW participants are encouraged to bring new or gently used children’s books for ages 5-12, on the day of the event. Collections will be given to JCY- Westchester Community Partners, a Division of the Family Service of Yonkers. The JCY’s mission is to enhance the educational experience of children in Westchester County through effective learning initiatives and the engagement of volunteer mentors.

All questions about this event can be directed to the YWW Co-Chairs, Leah Dembitzer and Kerry Hayes at writers10583@gmail.com.
