Junior Tamia Pugh and sophomores Daniel Kochupura and Cate Sindler were accepted into Creative Nonfiction's Writing Workshop, "Writing the Tough Stuff," a selective, eight-week online writing workshop, open to teens across Allegheny County.
Led by novelist, nationally and internationally produced playwright, Cofounder and Program Director of Words Without Walls, and Chatham University professor Sarah Shotland, "Writing the Tough Stuff" provides a space for students in grades 9-12 to write about challenging subjects like social isolation, anxiety, uncertainty, sexuality, gender identity, peer and family relationships, racism, bullying, mental illness, etc. The workshop will culminate in a reading of participants' work at the beginning of April.
Congratulations to all!
