The TEAM visit to Indiana University this year was a great success. The middle school and high school students got a taste of college life while spending time with their GV writing partners. After rigorous workshops on writing stories, brainstorming ideas, and cross-cultural considerations, the writing partners began their first drafts of their stories to be completed later this year. Along the way, the evaluation team encouraged volunteers to express themselves through art and music, incorporating a variety of techniques to get the creative juices flowing. In the end, the weekend was an emotional experience for all, including returning members who have seen the project grow over the past three years.
Now, with the TEAM kids back at home in Newark and the GV students playing catch-up with their academics, the 3rd year of Books & Beyond is entering its next chapter. Keep following here, and on Twitter, to stay updated on the most recent happenings of the Books & Beyond project.
With that, I conclude, “Happy Writing!”
