Discovering the Power of the Written Word: Using Creative Writing and Storytelling to Motivate Students to become Authors

Artist: Arianna Ross

Type: Residencies

Description

Writing has the ability to empower, anger, hurt, encourage, or excite.  This creative writing residency creates an atmosphere where students can redefine and polish their written voice.  Through a series of creative writing exercises that examine the process of writing, students discover the power of their own words to tell a story, persuade, or create an imaginary place.  By the end of the residency student have created a  piece of writing ready to be displayed at the school or published.  Arianna coordinates a special writers event where students have the opportunity to share their written stories with their peers and community members.
