Write253 began as a program that works closely with schools in the region. In 2016-17, we facilitated after school writing programs in four Tacoma public middle schools and two elementary schools:
- Baker MS (LTAB slam club)
- First Creek MS (film club)
- Guiadrone MS (book club)
- Jason Lee MS (memoir writing)
- McCarver Elementary (writing club)
- Roosevelt Elementary (debate club)
We are committed to bringing thoughtful, quality after school programming to schools throughout Tacoma. Our focus over the next few years will be to host an after school program in each of the ten Tacoma public middle schools.
We also conduct one-off and workshop series in schools who’d like us to visit. This year, we did workshops at Meeker MS, Keithly MS, Destiny Charter MS, and Lincoln HS. In the past, we’ve done workshops at Wilson HS and Stadium HS, as well.
If you are interested in starting up an after school program at your middle school, or would like more information about a school visit, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
