Writers in the Schools

During the school year The Cabin employs professional local writers –poets, fiction writers, playwrights, and non-fiction writers– to teach semester or school-year long writing residencies in schools, juvenile detention centers, and community learning centers. Through active, imaginative writing experiences under the mentorship of The Cabin’s teaching-writers, our goal is to engage students and classroom teachers in the pleasure and power of reading and writing.
