What We Do
Speak Up Has Gone Virtual!
Join us online for Speak Up, a creative writing program supporting the artistic and professional growth of teens.
In this FREE virtual creative writing workshop mini-series, teens will partner with experienced teaching artists to empower the creative writing process, from drafting to performance to publishing, to boost literacy and empower youth in Miami through community-based writing activities.
Teaching artists include nationally established authors Kyandreia Jones, author of Choose Your Own Adventure Spies: James Armistead Lafayette, and Romina Garber, author of Lobizona and the ZODIAC series.
The program is open to all teens (ages 13-19) and is as free of charge as it is free of homework. No previous experience necessary!
Online Creative Writing Workshops
Speak Up offers 60-minute online creative writing workshops taught by nationally-recognized and experienced teaching artists. These standalone virtual workshops focus on a new theme each week. Sign up for one, two, or the whole series!
