After six weeks of writing together in Fort Greene Park, NYWC’s youth community celebrated another creative summer at the 9th Annual Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival.
One of the rainiest Saturdays this summer was a source of inspiration for a catchy ditty on the ukulele, as youth gathered in — and around.
On Saturday, some 30 young writers will read poetry and fiction alongside well-known Brooklyn writers at Fort Greene Park’s monument.
The NY Times blog, the Local, is once again featuring writing by our young writers from the Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival.
Our free summer workshops for young people in Fort Greene Park are featured on the NY Times website.
