Where did you first lose someone? This is where. Where did you learn to be strong? This is where. Where did you meet the person who changed your life? This is where. These are the stories, the history of NOW.
For the past 8 weeks, youth participants in WritersCorps’ THIS IS WHERE workshop in Bayview Hunters Point have been exploring their own histories and memories attached to specific places and neighborhoods.
Join us — and special guest Donte Clark — as we celebrate new writing about place.

In the Cards
A Night of Literary Tarot
Apprentices is an after-school writing program in which youth aged 14-22 who are serious about writing work on special writing projects and take fun and inspiring field trips with their WritersCorps teaching artist.
The Apprentices are really excited to share the writing they’ve been working on with you! “In the Cards” will also be a launch for their “literary tarot cards”– a postcard set featuring their work.
Join us for this celebration of youth writing and creativity!
