This presentation and discussion will highlight the experiences of young writers, teachers, parents, artists, and community members who partner together to cultivate spaces for authentic writing practices through the Writing Our Lives youth writing project for students in grades 6-12 in the greater Syracuse area.

CART service will be provided. Queries can be directed to Patrick W. Berry at or 315-443-1912.

This event is supported by the SU Humanities Center and the Contemplative Collaborative.
