The Kids Write program is awarded a $10,000 grant
Writers Studio February 28, 2012
Helping writers reach their potential for more than 20 years
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT KIDS WRITE (KW) WAS JUST AWARDED A $10,000 GRANT from The Casement Fund, to teach writing to high school students in Brooklyn. Our non-profit branch, The Writers Studio KW provides after-school workshops and an intensive summer writing camp free of charge in Bedford-Stuyvesant at the Beacon Center inside Middle School 35. The purpose of these workshops is to help high school students discover their personal voices through writing and reading contemporary fiction and poetry.
CONGRATULATIONS TO KW WRITER SHYANNE BENNETT, who has received a Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for two poems and a fiction piece. Shyanne writes: “I really want to thank Kids Write for helping me become a better writer. Today, without even realizing it at first, I began thinking of how I could simulate Jane Austen’s precise language and keen observation of human character in my own writing. It made me realize I had no longer been taking in the novel as just a good reader but I was also taking it in as a good writer. Personally, it was a pivotal moment because this was exactly what KW taught me all this time. The impact was tremendous.”
TUTORIALS AVAILABLE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND ADULTS. For more information, contact email@example.com.
CONGRATULATIONS TO IROMIE WEERAMANTRY, whose story “Sujitha Underground” will be published in the 2012 issue (to be released in April) of The Alembic, the Literary Journal of Providence College, Rhode Island. Iromie started the story in the Master Class. Read more success stories.
