For the third year in a row, Boys.Write.Now Workshops teaches creative writing and art

Workshops for girls will also be held again this year

The Boys. Write. Now. Philadelphia workshop series is back again for another summer season. The workshops offer breakout sessions for poetry and writing, comic and visual art, video and game design, photography and media making for boys grades 7-12.

Last year’s series of workshops, covered by last August, had over 50 male participants over three workshops.

The workshops, which are supported by Scholastic Art and Writing Awards & the Philadelphia Writing Project, are organized by U School teacher and Notebook Blogger Samuel Reed, in conjunction with teaching artist Lamont Dixon and other teaching artists. Additional funding was provided by the 2014 BMe Awards and Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity at the University of Pennsylvania.

Workshops will take place at at University Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (August 7) and The National Museum of American Jewish History (August 14).

Similarly, Girls on Fire Art and Writing, a companion program to Boys.Write.Now., runs during the summer and the school year. The workshop is co-organized by Peggy Marie Savage and Reed to inspire young ladies create art and writing. The program also provides online mentoring and support students to submit art and writing for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards contest and other scholarship opportunities. The next scheduled workshop is August 15.
