The Surrey Writers' School (SWS) has partnered with Crescent Beach Comunity Services at Camp Alexandra (CBCS) to offer a program for youth entitled In Our Own Words.
15 youth between the ages of 12 and 20 will work collaboratively to plan, create and launch a publication of their work. In the process they will develop writing, publishing, marketing and organizational skills under the guidance of professional writers, editors and publishers.
This innovative project is funded by CBCS, SWS and the Surrey/White Rock Literacy Implementation Team (funded in part by the province's LiteracyNow initiative).
Contact me at lp@... for more information about this exciting new partnership, or pass the info. along to any youth in the surrey area who may be interested.
