LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 8, 2013)--The Little Rock Writing Project at UALR invites aspiring writers to apply to its Young Writers Camp set for July 8-12 on the university’s campus.
The primary objective is to help spur participants’ growth as writers, according to Dr. Sally Crisp, director of the Little Rock Writing Project.
