The age old question: Who do you want to be when you grow up? Engaging with peers and adult mentors is a huge help when deciding your next steps after graduation. WLC is a 3-day program for teens to collaborate on advanced writing projects, developing their professional selves, and interacting with diverse professionals. Connect your passion and skills with future academic and career options and meet other teen writers across the region!
