Writers in Baltimore - Patrice Hutton

Young writers summer studio
from the Writers in Baltimore schools site:

“Founded in 2008, WBS empowers the voices of Baltimore City students through in-school, after-school, and summer programming that builds skills in literacy and communication while creating a community of support for young writers. We give underserved students a smaller, more participatory setting to hone reading and writing skills.

Over the past 13 years, Writers in Baltimore Schools has held writing groups at 13 BCPS schools. We have served 1300+ BCPS students through 67 in-school courses, 72 after-school writing clubs, and 14 summer programs.

Writers in Baltimore Schools is a program of Fusion Partnerships, Inc., a 501(c)(3) fiscal agent for grassroots programs.

WBS student writing has appeared in the Poetry Foundation blog, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, The Baltimore City Paper, and Baltimore Beat. For the past six summers, WBS students have received full scholarships to attend the Iowa Young Writers’ Studio and the Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop. In 2018, two WBS alumni served as delegates to the inaugural International Congress of Youth Voices.”
