Creative Writing Scribes

Scribes will explore the elements of poetry and prose!

Scribes will 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. The session will culminate in a community reading where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
