Write to Read Day is an annual middle school conference where students attend workshops around literacy and communication. This year we have invited authors, poets, a sketch comedian, musician, graphic novelist, ASL interpreter, technologist, journalist, and a filmmaker.
Hands-on workshops let students create their own poem, artwork, comic, or short story with a professional. Students choose their session preferences and get a schedule tailored to their interests.
We will use all funds raised to pay presenter honorariums, order volunteer t-shirts, and purchase the necessary art supplies. We're grateful to have raised half of the money for this year by selling t-shirts. If you missed it, you can still show your Brooklyn reader pride by being a $100 supporter!
Risks and challenges
This is a low-risk investment! I can personally guarantee your money will go to supporting an inspiring day in the life of an East New York middle schooler.
The only serious risk is a last minute cancellation, but as educators, we think on our feet! Students will be reassigned to other workshops, or someone will be found to fill in and save the day.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
