Writers In The Schools

Writers In The Schools is a project meant to provide students an opportunity to express themselves through creative writing, with the ultimate goal of producing an anthology of their work to celebrate their artistic achievements. In order to achieve this goal, guest teachers create a series of lesson plans meant to encourage students’ writing, then teach students at Ricks Center, collecting the writing they’re most proud of for the anthology at the end of the project. Thus far, this project has already spurred the creation of a poetry anthology, and an anthology of students’ poetry, short stories, and plays is forthcoming. It is often a great sense of pride for students to see their writing published.
