Reflect & Connect
Reflect & Connect is a community call for writing submissions from the youth of Kalamazoo County. Over 250 writing prompt booklets have been distributed through Collaboration Kalamazoo’s Beyond the Backpack Reimagined and RAWK Reads. YOU can participate, too!
We want to hear you!
Read And Write Kalamazoo exists
to celebrate and amplify YOUR voice.
Your stories and experiences matter! We strive to find and create opportunities for our community to learn from you, and for you to learn from yourself.
The Reflect & Connect community project intends to be a space for you to reflect on your experiences over the past year and a half, to reach deep, feel some feelings, and process your thoughts. Reflecting and asking ourselves hard questions is how we grow!
Then you can submit your writing to be printed in a book! We’ll publish your writing alongside other writers from Kalamazoo County so the community and the world can hear what you have to say.
