Young Writers Project

Young Writers Program Blossoming at B40!
Posted on 05/28/2019
YWPFor the last six years, Branciforte Middle School 8th grade CORE classes have enjoyed an amazing collaboration with Young Writers Program sponsored by Santa Cruz County Office of Education. Every year writing project assistants from the community are paired with small groups of student writers to work on ideas, literary elements and refinement with the ultimate product being a “Cornerstone”  anthology full of student poetry and short stories. This year’s publication is titled Finding Home and is available for purchase at Bookshop Santa Cruz. In 2018-19 two classrooms also participated in a joint venture with the East Los Angeles Self-Help Graphics Art Program and Museo Eduardo Carrillo to write personal narratives inspired by student created art . The result is a beautiful full color book filled with emotion and creativity. These opportunities for our students bring a richness to the writing process that flows over into all aspects of writing for school and for life.
