Writers in the Schools
During the school year The Cabin employs professional local writers –poets, fiction writers, playwrights, and non-fiction writers– to teach semester or school-year long writing residencies in schools, juvenile detention centers, and community learning centers. Through active, imaginative writing experiences under the mentorship of The Cabin’s teaching-writers, our goal is to engage students and classroom teachers in the pleasure and power of reading and writing.
The Cabin, a meeting ground for readers and writers, supports its local writing and reading community through readings and workshops featuring local professional writers. This series aims to inspire, celebrate and feature the diversity of our writing community.
