City Paper is not for tourists
For this week’s Show & Tell, I spoke to a group of local writers, educators, and nonprofit staffers working to start up a creative writing center for District youth, ages 6 to 18. The 19 volunteers have a lot of ideas for the project, but their Capitol Letters Writing Center is still very much a work-in-progress: Currently, they’ve got no location, no students, and no money. Why don’t we help them out!
Reader: The future of the Capitol Letters Writing Center is in your hands! Help its volunteers decide where to locate their center, what sort of proto-nonprofit optimism Kool-Aid to drink , and whether or not to face their white guilt!
