In this camp, youth worked with theater artists Robert Farid Karimi and Harry Waters Jr. to create their own theater piece from start to finish. They learned techniques for idea generation, character development, ensemble work, and performance as they worked together to create a theatrical piece that gets to the heart of what they care about in the world.
Small doesn’t mean insignificant or reductive. Think atoms. DNA. Brief pieces can explode." —Joy Castro, "On Length in Literature"
In this fast-paced, exercise-driven literary class, youth explored the ins & outs of short-form or "flash" writing. They learned about a multitude of genres by writing postcard fiction & Twitter stories, prose poems & haikus, micro-essays & 6-word memoirs...and more! Led by local literary artist Wahida Omar, the class will led up to this public reading where participants shared their new work with family and friends.
