PEN in the Classroom comes to Braille Institute

PEN Center USA and So Say We All are thrilled to announce Julia Evans has been selected as a 2014 PEN in the Classroom Fellow! Over the course of 9 weeks, Julia will lead a class of adult students from The Braille Institute in creative writing instruction, culminating in a reading and published chapbook of student work.

Michelle Meyering, Director of Programs and Events at PEN Center USA, has been bringing creative writing programming and opportunities for local writers to San Diego for several years through collaborations with non-profit partners such as Ocean Discovery Institute and Southern California American Indian Resource Center. We’re thrilled to be able to help with the recruitment of interested writers and identifying populations who could benefit from the opportunity to tell their stories, and looking forward to seeing what Julia’s class has to say!
