The Department of English and Foreign Languages at Waynesburg University will hold a Creative Writing Workshop for high school students in grades nine through twelve Friday, Nov. 13, at 10 a.m. with check-in at 9:30 a.m. The deadline for registration is Friday, Oct. 9.

The event will feature Julia Paganelli, a poet and Waynesburg University alumna who is currently pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Arkansas.

The goal of the Creative Writing Workshop is to give high school students the opportunity to engage their imaginations and strengthen their writing skills through writing exercises provided by workshop facilitators.

Activities will include two workshops facilitated by Department of English and Foreign Languages faculty and students. During the student workshops, teachers will attend a workshop facilitated by Paganelli. Following the workshops, there will be a luncheon and student reading. The cost per student is $5. 

Paganelli is the author of a poetry chapbook, Blush Less, which focuses on the lives of young women in Appalachia. Other recent publications include poetry in Hobart, The Madison Review, BOAAT, Connotation Press and The Chautauqua Literary Journal.

Her work with the Bonner Program at Waynesburg greatly influenced her writing about Appalachia, as did her work with the Greene County Food Security Partnership.

Paganelli holds a bachelor’s degree in creative writing from Waynesburg University.
