Creative Escape & Connection

 

Middle school brings unique challenges, and our middle school program meets the needs of students in the midst of this formative time. TIWP creates a supportive environment for students to escape into the creative writing process, where they can be playful and find joy in the stories and worlds they create. We also provide a safe space for students to address the challenges they may be facing through the writing process. Teachers encourage and model authenticity, peer support, and self confidence. Each session involves an inspirational reading, a writing prompt, and time to share and receive feedback.

 

As with all our programs, we use the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, that all feedback be positive, and that our writing voice will continually grow clearer and stronger, the more it is validated and encouraged.

The Courage To Write

 

In this writing program, boys will learn how to tell their story and speak their truth, developing their voice both as writers and leaders. Over the course of the quarter, their teacher Mark Lukach will guide them through an introspective process of personal growth, helping teens discover what it means to be a healthy, empowered man in a culture that often demands their silence. Breaking from the pressures of toxic masculinity, Mark will support and mentor boys in the work of becoming brave young men. The curriculum is designed for high school boys and is tailored to the maturity of each group.
