The Telling Room
February 19, 2010
When I moved to Maine from Vermont about a year and a half ago, I was so excited to discover the Telling Room. Nothing quite like it exists in Vermont, that I know of. I've been a writer and an educator most of my life and I jumped at the chance to be involved in TR activities. My TR volunteer experiences have included encouraging immigrant teenage writers, homeschoolers, and after-schoolers in workshop topics ranging from ghost stories to food poetry to farming. I always come home inspired.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
seeing students expand and refine their ability to communicate through writing, especially kids who thought it would be too hard.
