[Deadline Passed] Writing Hub Spring 2012: Call for Aspiring Fiction Writers!

We apologize, but this deadline has passed. Check back for more information on future Writing Hub programs!

Spring Writing Hub

Kaneesha Parsard, PhD Candidate in African American/American Studies at Yale will be teaching IMAG(IN)ING THE ELM CITY, a Spring Writing Hub that will produce works of fiction and will culminate in an audio-visual showcase of students’ imagined Elm City. This means whether you identify yourself as a dancer, a painter, a singer, or an actor, you will have the chance to collaborate with other students to produce a public exhibition and publication in the CCC space. Writing “Hubbies” will not only engage in weekly writing, sharing, commenting, and editing workshops in an intimate environment, but also explore performances, art, and literature borne out of New Haven. The dual process of writing and exercising other art forms will inspire new possibilities of articulating the world you wish to create.
Here are what other students have said about the Hub:
“Hub Teachers worked skillfully and openly. They were mentors and friends at the same time.”
–Amber Farquharson, 11th grade

“The Hub made me realize how complicated my mind is and how to break it down to someone else.”
–Imani Manick-Highsmith, 10th grade

“The Hub made me go outside my comfort zone.”
–Izaiah Brown, 9th grade

“There is always room for laughter at the Hub.”
–Isaiah McKnight, 10th grade
