Creative Writing for Newcomer Youth
Thursdays Oct 22nd-Dec 10th
EST on Zoom
A new country, a new normal and a new life – but how does who we used to be inform who we are now? In this course students will mine their respective journeys for creative inspiration and explore the power of the written word. We are all storytellers, how will you tell yours?
