CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. — Jennifer Florentin of Hagerstown attended the 27th annual Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop at Chautauqua in July.

The workshop offered children’s writers, who came from four countries and 31 states, a week immersed in the world of writing for children.

The program included one-on-one sessions, small workshops, roundtable learning and speeches by industry leaders.  A focus of the program is on high access and interchange between faculty and students.

As part of the program, Florentin met in manuscript-consulting sessions with Kathryn D. Erskine, part of the workshop faculty.

The 137-year-old Chautauqua Institution is a national pioneer in combining education, cultural events and leisure activities in a lakefront setting in western New York state.
