Join us online for Speak Up, a creative writing program supporting the artistic and professional growth of teens.

In this virtual mini-series of creative writing workshops, teens will partner with experienced teaching artists to empower the creative writing process, from drafting to performance to publishing.

The program is open to all teens, and is as free of charge as it is free of homework. No previous experience necessary!
