COVID-19 Update

In adherence to guidelines set in place by Miami University and the State of Ohio, the OWP 2020 Youth Writing Camp will be canceled. We are sad to miss this week with young writers but look forward to next year when we will have two camps - our youth camp for student writers, grades 5 - 8 and the new Rise Up and Write camp for teen writers, grades 9-12. Most importantly, take care to all of the OWP YWC families.
