After-School Writing Programs
offer students ages 6-18 in-person and virtual opportunities to write and tell their stories at our Greenwood and Yesler Terrace locations. Students also have the opportunity to work together in writing and storytelling clubs, focus on individual projects, and learn from visiting guest writers, artists, and experts. Our overall approach, along with focused activities, nurtures emotional awareness, elevates creative voice, and builds a strong community.
Our Program Managers are experienced educators practicing Social and Emotional Learning and the tenets of Growth Mindset. They draw on the whole of the Fearless Ideas community, which includes the active participation of families and the help of trained volunteers. Ultimately, the success of our After-School Writing Programs rely on students who bring a genuine desire to learn and a commitment to be kind, creative, and fearless.
Our yearly calendar and emergency cancellations adhere to those set by Seattle Public Schools.
I enjoyed the ways you were able to connect us with ourselves and the whole group through writing and creativity."
