Prairie Writer's Workshop: Next Generation

Prairie Writer's Workshop: Next Generation

The Prairie Writer’s Workshop is designed to rethink how K-12 art education is produced in rural schools, with a goal to create a more dynamic cultural aesthetic practice. By encouraging students to reflect on their relationship to the past, present and future of their rural community, this interdisciplinary program intersects art, creative writing and journalism, building fluency in writing techniques and attaining hands-on design and publishing experience.
