The deadline for the Tomorrow's Writers Today program is approaching. The Cape Cod Writers Center is seeking Cape student writers, poets and journalist for a one-day tuition-free workshop to be held on Saturday, March 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Sturgis High School East Campus in Hyannis.

"It's a unique experience that few schools are able to offer their students today," said Cape Cod Writers Center Executive Director Nancy Rubin Stuart.

Students interested in writing will have the opportunity to learn under two professional authors--novelist Reade Scott Whinnem and freelance journalist and author Candace Hammond. "Our teachers offer formal instruction, personal guidance and inspiration based upon their experience as working writers in today's marketplace." said Rubin.

Whinnem, at teacher at Dennis-Yarmouth High School, is the author of "Utten and Plumley" and "The Pricker Boy". Hammond is the author of "The Best Worst Year".

Young writers in grades 7 through 12 are encouraged to submit an essay and a completed application by the March 2 deadline.
