Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. will host the second annual Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop and Competition in conjunction with Friends of Wolf Creek and Opus Cultural Lifestyle Magazine.   Fifty slots in the workshop and subsequent competition are available on a first-come-first-served basis to middle and high school students in Fulton County. The Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop sessions will be held on the following Saturdays from 10a.m. to 3 p.m.: June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 at the Wolf Creek Library, 3100 Enon Rd, Atlanta, GA 30349.   Free lunch will be provided.

“Being able to harness the power of the written word is essential,” said District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. “Through this workshop and competition, we hope to expose our young people to the possibilities available to them through writing.”

The Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop and Competition (WTR) seeks to assist young writers as they develop enthusiasm for and expertise in their own writing.   The program also attempts to celebrate their successes as budding authors by guiding them in the development of building their portfolio and exposing them to the professional editorial and publishing process. The Write to Rise Young Writer’s Workshop will include authors, writers and industry professionals who will help guide participants through a comprehensive preparation program focusing on personal and professional development as a writer.

Participants are automatically entered into the WTR Competition, gaining a chance to win 1st, 2nd & 3rd place scholarships and prizes.   The winning students will also have their work published in Opus Cultural Lifestyle Magazine.   The writing submissions will be accepted during the course of and immediately following the workshops and the awards event will be held in August 2018.   More information regarding the workshop and competition can be found at  http://www.w2r.org.
