As part of its mission to meet the diverse needs of Brooklyn youth Horizons will offer a 7 week writing program this summer. This will be offered to middle and high school aged young people and will taught by Horizons staff and volunteers. Students will be taught various writing styles including poetry, short fiction, playwriting, fantasy and personal narrative. The young people will develop their skill sets while also having their appreciation for writing advanced as they are exposed to a number of writers. At the conclusion of the program the young people will share their work at a reading attended by their families and friends at a local Cafe.
