AAWW’s arts education and outreach program, CreateNow, is an interactive creative writing & storytelling workshop program offered after school to teens and senior citizens at high schools and senior centers throughout New York City. Students participate in a series of weekly workshops to gain writing and story-telling skills and work closely with established writers of color, graphic novelists, journalists, and poets. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Spring session of workshops took place online. Despite the distance, our students found meaningful ways to connect with one another.
