Every two years, 20-25 selected student writers are invited to attend Calvin College’s Writers Workshop.  Over 1,000 middle school students gather at Calvin College to improve their writing skills and hear authors talk about the process of writing.

Each student also writes and submits an entry into the Golden Pen Awards Contest.  Some of our students have placed in the contest!   All students leave the workshop encouraged, thinking of themselves as writers and are motivated to keep improving their writing skills.
