From The Wren's Nest:
Become a Writing Mentor!
We are looking for professional or grad student writers, journalists, illustrators, web designers, or historians to mentor middle school students from KIPP Strive Academy for our Scribes Program. As part of this program, mentors will work with students in small groups (usually one-on-one) guiding them through the writing process as they create their own original stories. At the end of the program, the students' stories are published in an anthology that they share (and sign!) at the Decatur Book Festival in the fall.
The Scribes Program runs weekly from Jan. 30 - April 23 (with a week off for spring break). If you are interested, please email Jim Auchmutey (firstname.lastname@example.org) by next Friday (Jan. 17th).
Join us and help these students on their journeys to become published authors!
