Virtually celebrate San Francisco’s young and emerging writers at WordStorm 2021! Join us to lift up the WritersCorps youth participants, support their year-long efforts and hear their original works. Meet the WritersCorps teaching artists whose literary talents helped make these youth’s creativity shine. We welcome students, supporters, teachers and community members of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to attend.

The WritersCorps (WCTAIR) Teaching Artist-in-Residence grant program focuses on youth literacy development through creative writing and nurtures the artistic and professional talents of teaching artists through regular cohort meetings over a course of three years. WCTAIR artists teach creative writing and foster the talents and literacy of youth through partnerships with schools and community-based organizations (CBOs). WCTAIR has a history of prioritizing and providing access to LGBTQ+ youth, teenage parents, low-income youth and youth affected by the juvenile justice system.

WordStorm is organized by the San Francisco Arts Commission through the WritersCorps Teaching Artist in Residence grant program (WCTAIR), and in collaboration with San Francisco Public Library. For more information, contact Tina Wiley, Arts Education Program Officer at tina.wiley@sfgov.org.
