Young Writers Institute

“The Young Writer’s Institute” depicts the creative process as seen through the eyes of children participating in a summer poetry workshop.  Fieldtrips inspire metaphors, teachers moderate revision groups, and the writing process culminates in a public reading.  This video profiles a summer poetry workshop and was sent out to national foundations. It was orginally inspired by my short Recipe for Joy.
