Writers (teachers and students) grades 5-12 are invited to this year’s Fort Laramie Writing Festival, a free digital event designed for writing classes and clubs with the ability to watch videos and participate in digital writing prompts.

This year’s event offers four asynchronous activities pairing a virtual tour of part of Fort Laramie National Historic Site with a writing activity led by a Nebraska Writing Project teacher. Each video is 30 to 40-minute and contains an interpretive video from a ranger and a writing prompt. Strategies for the development and sharing of student pieces will be included with the prompts.

Registration Information and more details on the sessions are available here:
