Picture Me HEre + Write Denver

Since the spring of 2016, Write Denver and Picture Me Here have led several classes at Emily Griffith Technical College collaborating with the staff of the English Language School. These students are most often refugees from around the world, and they are documenting their experience as they immerse themselves in American culture. We developed a unique storytelling curriculum combining creative writing, photography, and English-language learning. Participant’s photos and writing are then incorporated into Write Denver art installations and publications. 

These workshops are led by published authors who belong to the Lighthouse Writers Workshop faculty
