Scribes & NAAM GRADES 9-12
The Northwest African American Museum and its collection will be the inspiration for this week of Scribes. Via remote access, Scribes instructors will build a unique week of creative writing around African American culture, history, and art. You’ll explore elements of poetry and prose, trying new styles and forms while reading and meeting writers who will inspire you. All skill levels welcome.
This session will be held online using a combination of Zoom and Google Classroom.
