An open environment for young storytellers to write poetry, short fiction, and playwriting in small collaborative groups. Students build imaginative narratives and find their creative voice, while developing concrete elements of storytelling like structure, point of view, and conflict and resolution. The summer culminates with the publication of every student's work in Usdan's student-authored literary magazine, Painting With Words.
