Creative Writing Scribes

Scribes will explore the treasures of poetry and prose. Together with JP and Arianne, Scribes will engage dynamically with creative writing and participate in arts-driven field trips, writing activities, craft exercises, and exposure to a diverse range of genres, forms, and writers. Scribes will explore the urban environment as they learn to experience the world as writers. A highlight of the program is building a supportive creative community and making new friends. The session will culminate in a community reading where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
