Authoring Action’s nontraditional approaches to writing and public speaking succeed in moving young people beyond limiting beliefs about their own abilities to achievements they never dreamed possible.That’s why we want to partner with you...to reach youth whose lives you touch every day. In addition to the services noted below, we welcome the opportunity to work with your organization to deliver customized workshops and training suited to your academic and/or program goals.
A five-day creative writing and spoken word journey in transformation, empowerment and possibility for middle and high school aged youth. Designed to motivate students of all academic achievement levels to put pen to paper, Authoring Action methods level the playing field, validating life experience as the point of departure for exploring self and the larger world. Youth will access their unique points of view and bring them to life through monologues, poems, essays, editorials, raps and lyrics delivered in a culminating program. For groups of 15-20.
A five-day workshop designed for educators, youth organization leaders, law enforcement, social service workers and others with an interest in positive youth development. Participants will experience the power of Authoring Action methods through immersion in signature processes - “Writing To The Senses” and “Sharing Eye-to-Eye” - to develop original written works of various genres for oral delivery in a culminating program. Strategies for integrating methods in support of standard course of study and/or program goals will be discussed. For groups of 20-25.
