This summer, Write@253 partnered with the YMCA to present writing workshops to students at First Creek Middle School as part of a writing and film enrichment program. Our summer intern Madeline McVay and poet Michael Haeflinger have presented a handful of writing exercises, including odes, essential life stories, and visual poetry (see examples below).
TCC students Jeremiah Schuler and John Schuler have led the film portion of
the program, which will culminate in spoken word videos to be presented at the program’s final presentation.
Thanks to Fahren Johnson and Allison Muir for setting up the workshops. We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know the youth and are proud of their hard work!
