Our free summer workshops for young people in Fort Greene Park are featured on the NY Times website. About 40 young people aged 7-17 are writing with us every Saturday in the park, culminating in the 2010 Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival on Saturday, August 21 at 3 PM.
More poems by our amazing young writers will be featured in the weeks to come.
