Rise Up & Write is a program from the Greater Madison Writing Project and the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Rise Up and Write will bring together high school students interested in issue advocacy through writing. Youth writers will work together and with professional teachers of writing to read, research, and write for awareness and change around issues that matter.
Rise Up & Write is supported by a grant from the National Writing Project.
