NY Writers Coalition Press & Apogee Journal are proud to present EVERYTHING I COULDN’T SAY: POETRY & PROSE FROM GUMBO. What you’re about to read is the battle cry of Great United Minds Believing in Ourselves (GUMBO), NYWC’s after school workshops for teens at Benjamin Banneker Academy in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
The GUMBO Writing Group is made possible by the Cultural After School Adventures Initiative (CASA), supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
