Middle School Scribes

Scribes will explore the treasures of poetry and prose. Together with JP and Arlene, Scribes will engage dynamically with creative writing and participate in quality programming that includes 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.
