Nicholas Academic Center & CSUF Grand Central Art Center to host Barrio Writers Summer 2019!


July 15-19, 2019 @ Grand Central Art Center (GCAC)

GCAC has partnered with Barrio Writers to host a free 1-week summer writing program in the community!

We invite all youth between 13-21 years old to participate in a week long college-level creative writing program led by BW Program Coordinator Joel L. Medina, an MAT graduate from the University of California at Irvine School of Education. The workshops will provide youth with an opportunity to learn different forms of writing (poetry, spoken word, hip-hop, short stories, essay), a path to college and free cultural arts field trips!
