As we're revving up for the second year of RAWK Writers' Room at Maple Street Middle School we want to shine a spotlight on two volunteers who really make it all happen. Thank you to these two bright and caring people for sharing your time with our students. Without further ado, here are Nicole and Doug!
Happy New Year! OK, it’s still 2016, but once you’ve been a student, the beginning of the school year feels like beginning again each year. You’ll find a new slate of fall workshops on our calendar with new (and dear, returning) facilitators, and we’ll also have new opportunities to read with us as we emphasize the R in RAWK. And we have a new RAWKstar in our midst, so we’d like to introduce you to Victoria Marcetti, our new communications associate.
We're still basking in the glow of our RAWK READS! event last night at Bookbug—always proven to be a beautiful reflection of our summer that's filled to the brim with writing, creating, and planning. Our students sharing their work with an eager audience is integral to our core beliefs, as we're always striving to celebrate and amplify youth voices. While last night was the perfect close to our busiest summer on the books, our office is far too quiet today. We want to be congratulating each other and sharing sweet anecdotes from the night, but we're missing one person. Last night also marked the last day for Anja, our summer intern.
