2008-2009 Writing Club

"The writing club will be doing much of the same as last year. We will continue to provide opportunity for the participants to express themselves in various forms of writing emphasizing and encouraging the creative writing skills. We will be exposing the participants to new forms of writing while hopefully showing them the power of words and the impact they have. Each week we will have a new activity which is recorded in each of their journals. The journals are turned in at the end of each class and the participants are encouraged to participate in the activity or free write."

Writing Club Stars at June 2008 Year End Dinner

The writing club continued to meet weekly at Cabrini Connections throughout the 2007-08 school year.
On June 12 the year-end dinner celebration featured presentations from several of the young poets.
This year we had two guests from Korea at the dinner, and they created a video that you can now see on YouTube, to document the excitment and warmth of this year's celebration.
Clubs are still meeting each week at Cabrini during the summer and we're seeking additional volunteers to support the writing club during the coming school year. Contact us at 312-492-9614, or email if you are interested.
