  • OSU Writing Project Policies for Families
    1. Parents/Guardians should understand that their child is participating in the workshop as part of a collaborative experience with other writers.  Therefore, attendance is critical for both your child’s support and our OSU facilitators.
    2. Students who miss more than two sessions will be dropped from the workshop for the summer and the registration fee will not be refunded. 
    3. You will need strong, hi-speed internet, a desktop, laptop, or tablet for your child’s participation. The writing session will last for up to 90 minutes with short breaks, so snacks are welcome, too.
    4. Parents/Guardians need to find a distraction-free space for virtual writing, as well as basic school supplies, such as a notebook and pencil.
