About


The YAWP curriculum sends professional writers and writing teachers into Long Island schools with a variety of innovative, inter-disciplinary writing workshops, including:

  • Playwriting
  • Screenwriting
  • Poetry
  • Personal Essay
  • Fiction

… all of which conclude with special projects and presentations, as well as potential vodcasts, blogs and/or publication in the YAWP Ezine.

The goals of YAWP include:

  • To enhance critical thinking, collaboration and communications skills.
  • To help each student find and develop his or her unique voice and point of view.
  • To use creative expression as a way to solve problems and promote global awareness.
  • To advance 21st century skills while supporting ELA requirements.
