Salt Lake Teens Write

(September 2012 - May 2013)

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.
