Writing is good for everyone.

Welcome to Writing is Good for Everyone, our new video series featuring members of NYWC’s workshops and what inspires them to write the powerful poetry and prose that makes NYWC the creative community we’ve come to love.

First up: Meet Bridin McCann, age 14. Bridin is a member of Ridge Girls, NYWC’s workshop for young girls in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and a fine arts student at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School. Here Bridin introduces us to her world — and her sci-fi novel-in-progress!

Produced by Liam Billingham
Music by Kevin McCleod
