a teen writers' workshop
This 5 week series uses writing to break out of the boxes others put us into-- or worse yet, boxes that we put ourselves into. Labels may abound in everyday life: "most popular," "straight A student," "stoner," "drama queen," "jock," "slacker," or "outsider." The act of writing lets us leave all those masks behind and come closer to person we really are inside.

A limited run, class anthology book and a reading night will be presented at the end of the series.
