From Post Defiance:
Write@253 (a member of the Campus MLK faculty) is a mentoring nonprofit that seeks to “inspire the writer that lives in everyone.” They hold classes and mentoring activities in cooperation with Tacoma Public Schools, working extensively in Tacoma’s south side middle schools. Write@253 also operate out of their writing center on Martin Luther King Jr. Way through the Spaceworks program.
Post Defiance (also a faculty member) is proud to partner with Write@253 to present a series of poems written by students at First Creek Middle School who having been working with the volunteers from Write@253. The students’ poetry follows a structure derived from the poem “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon, and powerfully reveal the diverse backgrounds that make each of these Tacoma students unique.
