It was fantastic to work with Upward Bound high school students. The four day learner-centered workshop focused on writing exercises based on the book:
Day 1: Telling stories about our background
Day 2: Telling stories about loss
Day 3: Telling stories about challenges
Day 4: Telling stories about ourselves
Reflecting on our backgrounds, loss, and challenges forms the structure for developing personal statements.
Thank you to the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona for providing the Pivot Grant which allowed me to purchase copies of Piñata Moon from Antigone books. The Pivot Grant allows artists to explore new ways to connect with the community digitally during COVID-19.
Please contact me about bringing this workshop to your school or community.
