Write on Sports Rhode Island
Student must live or attend school in the greater Providence area.
Write on Sports uses the theme of sports as a way to connect with students in an authentic and meaningful way. During camp, we turn the students into sports writers to strengthen their writing and literacy skills. Students pick a theme of their choice (related to sports) and identify a project including a feature article or fiction story. They will also work on a multimedia project, either a video or a podcast episode. Another feature of camp is the Guest Days; bringing in professional journalists (from TV, radio and print media outlets) and athletes (ranging from college, professional and retired professionals). We include a sports related field trip.
The Write on Sports Rhode Island program is located at Providence College, serving students in Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, Woonsocket, Cranston and other area cities!
