Young Writers Society in Parramore

ParramoreMainPic (1)

During the school year, students of all skill levels can find the freedom to express their creativity through story telling, poetry, journalism, and creative writing at Page 15’s after-school Young Writers Society at the Downtown Recreation Complex in Parramore. Students can find opportunities to publish, present, and perform original hand crafted content for their community. No grades. No homework. No pressure.

Open TuesdayThursday, students are greeted by a bright community themed mural, natural lighting, classical music, and a healthy snack which helps renew energy and improve focus.

Since writing is at the heart of Page 15’s mission, students will practice their writing skills on a daily basis. Since studies show that daily free writing helps students explore vocabulary, concepts, and writing styles that they wouldn’t risk for a formal essay or graded assignment, Page 15 staff regularly reviews students’ journals for evaluation of writing, as well as to gauge the increase in fluency.

Our heart is in Parramore

Every year, Page 15 gives more than 100 literacy scholarships to children living in the low-income neighborhood of Parramore, a historically significant African American community located in the heart of downtown Orlando. Since 2008, we have been committed to helping Parramore children discover the valuable skills they need to transition out of poverty, and onto the path of opportunity
