Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: Literary Arts workshops will be held at Waterloo Arts on Saturday afternoons are free and open to the public and will target youth 14-17. They will be led by local literary artists and co-curated by Ray McNiece. They are 90 minutes long and will culminate with each participant reading/performing. The winner of each genre workshop will compete in the final Lit Jam for $500 in Cash Prizes. Youth may participate in all workshops but can win only one genre.
Community Engagement Strategy: Ray McNiece, David Shelton, youth outreach coordinator, and various artists will do outreach and recruiting presentations at Collinwood High School, Villa Angela/St. Joseph School and The Collinwood Rec Center.
