COVID-19 Update

As we adjust to the uncertain times due to COVID-19, OWP will be following guidelines set in place by Miami University and the State of Ohio as to whether or not we can hold the camp. We will be making a decision by June 1 at the latest. 
For now, we are accepting registrations for the OWP 2020 Youth Writing Camp but please do not send payment as reimbursements may not be possible. Simply complete the registration to hold a spot and we will contact you after June 1 for payment. 
Most importantly, take care to all of you and your families.
