Write on Sports

Experienced writers and teachers understand that writing becomes more enjoyable when you write about something you love. The concept of Write on Sports (WOS) is to teach youth to write by teaching them to write about sports, a subject they are passionate about.

During their time in Write on Sports, students learn the basic elements of good journalism and apply their knowledge to writing spot stories and a feature piece. As part of the learning process, WOS introduces youth to professional journalists and athletes, whom they interview and then write about. Students also write scripts and produce videos in a broadcast studio or on computers. They blog about events they attend, guests they have interviewed, or opinions they have about sports. Write on Sports encourages critical thinking, and students are expected to revise their stories multiple times in order to improve their work.
