Free writing workshops offered for high school students

Connecticut high school students can attend free journalism workshops at Southern Connecticut State University during the week of July 11.

Professors in the Journalism Department at Southern will host sessions on writing, coming up with story ideas, layout, social media and more.

Any Connecticut high school student interested in learning more about journalism and writing is welcome to attend.

The workshops will be held on July 11, 12 and 13 from 8:30 a.m. to noon, at Southern Connecticut State University, 501 Crescent St. in New Haven.

Students who participate in the workshops will get a chance to continue working with CTTeens, a group of high school students led by Journalism Department Chair Cindy Simoneau. Throughout the school year, CTTeens students report and write articles of interest to high school students in the state, and publish the work on the CTTeens website.
