Community Writing Center
In Salt Lake Teens Write (SLTW), underserved teens are paired with volunteer mentors who use writing in their daily lives and professions. Together, they explore how writing opens different pathways to education and successful careers. Mentoring teams meet for 1-2 hours a week and work together to produce a portfolio of writing based on the teen's interests. They also attend quarterly writing workshops with the other SLTW mentoring teams. At the end of the year, all of the mentoring teams collaborate on an anthology publication and public reading to celebrate the different texts they have created during the year.
The SLCC Community Writing Center (CWC) supports, motivates and educates people of all abilities and educational backgrounds who want to use writing for practical needs, civic engagement and personal expression.In addition to an open space available for writing, we provide opportunities to enhance writing abilities through such programs as Writing Coaching , Writing Workshops, the DiverseCity Writing Series, Salt Lake Teens Write, and Community Writing Partners.
