Center publishes new book of children's work

This year’s writing project, DANGER, explores the theme of violence in neighborhoods, schools and homes.

Assistant Director Owen Duncan writes in the introduction, “In this collection we find, as in any book of children’s writings, the beautiful next to the mundane, the fantastic mixed with the gritty–but there is a deeply troubling undercurrent here. These children offer us few illusions: they know the evils of human nature; they know their world is not safe.”

The annual writing project offered children the chance to tell stories from their own eyes and practice writing deeply and vividly. One student, Serenity, even produced a video based on her story, “Danger.” Click here to read the book online.
