Scribes at the Henry

Scribes will be surrounded by the labyrinth of artistic treasures the Henry Art Gallery has to offer. Together with Quenton and Rachel, Scribes will engage dynamically with a wide range of creative writing exercises and participate in arts-driven field trips, experimental forms, collaborative pieces. Whether your bag is creating poetry, comics, characters, or short prose, you’ll find something to connect with and something new to try in this multi-genre exploration of craft and words. The session will culminate in a community reading where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
