Barrio Writers Summer Youth Workshops for Summer 2024

Barrio Writers is a youth centered and youth led creative writing workshop for youth 13-18 years old. Barrio Writers creative writing program aims to empower teens through creative writing (poetry, fiction writing, personal narratives, zine-making) and cultural arts that represent their experiences. Youth will discuss and write about issues of social justice that are important to them as well as community solidarity and care. Barrio Writers is supported by our community partner, Red Salmon Arts. 

Barrio Writers Workshops are free and open to youth 13-18 and will take place at Resistencia Bookstore on Thursdays, June 20th and June 27th 10:40am-2pm  (includes lunch) with a youth reading and celebration on Saturday, July 13th, including the presentation of a youth created zine. All materials and snacks for these materials will be provided. Register today to reserve your spot here!
