Recommended Grades: 9-12 | Flex Type: Scheduled & Facilitated

Why does place matter in the stories we tell? How are we shaped by the places where we live? What happens when stories of place are shared with readers from other locations?

Write Where You Are is a one-week experience in creative writing that focuses on the stories you have to tell about your places, yourselves, and your communities. This is an opportunity for students from around the world to collectively write, record, and share place-inspired drafts in a global gallery of words and media.

You’ll look closely at where you are. And who you are. And your communities. You may conduct interviews, dabble in travel writing, or dig deep into a personal narrative. You’ll have a variety of pathways from which to choose, each offering creative inspiration and each focusing on how a place can be the foundation for some of the most meaningful stories we have to tell.

You’ll be joined by inspiration from published authors and a community of student writers from around the world working simultaneously to draft, explore, and share storytelling from varied locations and experiences.

Who is this course for?

This course is appropriate for students in grades 9-12. The use of pathways in the course design will allow classes from a variety of disciplines to connect meaningfully to the program, including English, social studies, global studies, religion, philosophy, and clubs or advisory programs interested in exploratory writing and self-reflection.
