Scribes at Northwest African American Museum

Scribes will be immersed in culture and history at the Northwest African American Museum, a vital Seattle institution, to explore elements of poetry and prose. Together with Daemond and Arianne, Scribes will use creative writing to build and nourish rich internal worlds while engaging with one another in a fun summer camp atmosphere. Scribes will participate in arts-driven field trips, writing activities, craft exercises, and exposure to a diverse range of styles, forms, and writers. The session will culminate in a community reading where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
