West Writer’s Week is Hazelwood West’s annual celebration of writing during which published authors, teachers, and students share and discuss their work. Writers Week provides a unique and memorable experience for the students at Hazelwood West, one which is only offered to a handful of students nationwide. This event showcases the positive aspects of our students, school, and community, while showing students that writing is not limited to just the English classroom.
