Writing on Fire is launching its first Anthology of youth writing, unapologetic hearts, as well as screening the documentary, Writing on Fire—North Shore Youth Experience on Sunday, March 18th, from 1-3 in the Murray Room at the deCoste Centre, Pictou.
It will be a celebration of creativity, a revelation of the amazing authors, the incredible youth who enliven and enrich the North Shore of Nova Scotia. Over the past six years, Writing on Fire has brought authors and mentors to schools from New Glasgow to Pugwash for students in Grades 7-12.
We have witnessed such powerful words, and youth, that we realized it was time to be able to send them out into the wider community. Special funding this year allowed the printing of an Anthology, as well as the creation of a documentary by filmmaker, Catherine Bussiere. The documentary, while describing the motivation behind Writing on Fire, focuses on the creators and their ideas, these fabulous youth from our North Shore.
Refreshments will be served.
