Connecticut Writing Project at UConn

Since 1982, the Connecticut Writing Project at UConn has worked to improve writing instruction in Connecticut's schools.  To that end, the CWP sponsors several opportunities for teachers to engage in quality professional development and for both teachers and K-12 students to publish their writing.  Below are several forms for applying to some of these opportunities, including the Summer Institute, Connecticut Student Writers , and Letters About Literature.  Click the icon above to visit our website, or email us at [email protected].

The Write On, Black Girl! writing retreat will take place in person on February 24th in the Writing Center in Willard DiLoreto W314 located at 1615 Stanley Street, New Britain, CT 06050. Unfortunately, there will not be a virtual option. Registration is required for food and gift bags. Poet, Marilyn Nelson will be our keynote for this amazing experience, so register soon!

The Write On, Black Girl! Contest   The Connecticut Writing Project (CWP) sponsors Connecticut Student Writers , a magazine established in 1987 by the CWP to honor excellence in writings by students from kindergarten through high school and college undergraduates. In keeping with the mission of the annual Connecticut Student Writers contest, Write On, Black Girl! provides a space for qualifying participants in Connecticut to submit their original poetry, prose, memoir or artwork to be considered for our publication. Write On, Black Girl! aims to provide authorial validation and recognize the importance of writing in their lives. For some, writing for Write On, Black Girl! will be a steppingstone for further literary endeavors. With the second issue, we will publish the second edition of Write On, Black Girl! , a collection of poetry, prose, memoir or artwork written by Black girls, Black trans-girls, and Black gender non-conforming folx across the United States in order to foreground their voices in discussions about American identity.

We believe Write On, Black Girl! will provide publishing opportunities not only for participants in the state of Connecticut but also across the nation. From this large pool of poetry, essays, short stories, memoir, drama, and art, submissions are considered for publication by a panel of judges. And though we would like to publish all of the submissions, we must be selective.

Submission deadline is Monday, April 8th, 2024.   To submit, complete the electronic form here: https://connecticutwritingproject.submittable.com/submit/276679/2023-2024-write-on-black-girl

Seniors are recognized by Connecticut Student Writers for work

Lizzy Burke Opinions Editor

image

Recently, seniors Alex Rose, Caroline Muller, Ross Hurlock and Leah Clark were recognized by Connecticut Student Writers, a magazine established in 1987 by the Connecticut Writers Project to honor excellence in writing by students. The magazine is published annually by the University of Connecticut, featuring work from students in Connecticut in grades K-12.

The magazine published a poem from Alex and a fiction piece from Caroline. The Honorable Mention awards were also given to Ross and Leah for their fiction pieces.

Creative Writing teacher Hannah Magnan encourages her students to submit their work to the publication each year. However, this year was the highest participation. “My students chose their best piece from the Creative Writing course to submit,” she said. “Not everyone submits, but this year we sent in around 30 pieces.”

Caroline recognized the value in Ms. Magnan’s encouragement. “As much as I would like to say that I was motivated to submit on my own, it was a requirement for my Creative Writing course,” she said, “But I’m glad I did.”

The publication has 8 opportunities for recognition of creative pieces for 12th graders, with 2 pieces being published and 2 Honorable Mentions for the two categories of Fiction and Poetry. Out of the 8 spots for seniors in high school, New Canaan students claimed 50%, out of a pool of over 1,000 submissions from high schools across the state.

In addition, students see the positive benefits of submitting their work to the publication, as well. “It feels very good to work so hard on something and be recognized,” Alex said. “I edited it countless times, and receiving this award reaffirms that I should continue writing.”

2023 CSW Award Night Speaker Chandra Prasad; click image for more information

Chandra Prasad is the author of the young adult novels Mercury Boys, a 2022 Connecticut Book Award finalist,  and Damselfly, a racially diverse, female-driven survival tale published by Scholastic.  Damselfly is used widely in schools as a modern parallel text with the Lord of the Flies.  Her general fiction titles include On Borrowed Wings, another Connecticut Book Award finalist; Death of a Circus, which Booklist calls “richly textured and packed with glamour and grit;” and Breathe the Sky, a fictionalized account of Amelia Earhart’s last days. Prasad is the editor of—and a contributor to—the W.W. Norton anthology Mixed, the first-ever collection of short stories on the multiracial experience. Her shorter works have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, The Week, Teen Voices, School Library Journal, and in literary, arts, and poetry journals. Prasad is a frequent guest speaker on podcasts and at high schools, universities, and literary conferences. She is also a contributor to New Haven Noir, an anthology edited by Amy Bloom.

  • We WILL BE honoring some teachers, too, with certificates.
  • Likewise, the magazine WILL NOT BE distributed in print at Recognition Night. The magazine WILL be distributed electronically as a PDF and WILL be available for download from our website.

  • There WILL BE a keynote speaker– Chandra Prasad –and we WILL have 13 student speakers from grades K-12 who will read their work from the stage.
  • Chandra Prasad’s books WILL BE available for purchase, and she WILL BE signing books briefly at the end of the night.
  • There WILL BE parking in the South garage (the one by Gampel). You can use UConn’s paybyphone or a kiosk located near the elevators on the first floor of the garage and pay the $2.00 per hour rate for your visit. Seniors, young kids, etc., can be dropped off in front of Jorgensen and then Mom or Dad can take Alumni Drive to the South Parking Garage, park the car, and walk over along Hillside Road.
  • Directions, Maps, and Parking Info CAN BE found here: https://admissions.uconn.edu/visit/directions/
  • There is NO limit on the number of people who can attend. Jorgensen holds about 3000 and our largest pre-pandemic crowd was about 1600. Anyone can attend–siblings, teachers, grandparents, neighbors, the mailman. All are welcome.
