* a moving thank you from the girls at the Keys Center Academy
Posted by Lew Weinstein on May 28, 2012
For the past two years, I have organized and taught a fiction writing workshop at the Keys Center Academy (KCA) in Key West. Last week, they held an appreciation breakfast for all of the adult volunteers who contribute to their unique learning environment.
KCA is a program of the Key West High School for girls “at risk” for a variety of reasons. There are no issues, however, with their intellectual capabilities, and every one who came to my workshop produced the beginnings of a solid first scene, and one produced what I thought was a publishable story.
