Intersection for the Arts

INTERSECTION FOR THE ARTS presents a four-part intergenerational reading series featuring some of our most esteemed literary icons and writer-teachers and youth poets from WritersCorps, an organization that has transformed and strengthened individuals and communities through the written and spoken word. Since its inception in 1994, WritersCorps has helped over 10,000 young people from neighborhoods throughout San Francisco improve their literacy and increase their desire to learn.
This current series explores the themes and styles of writing across three different generations - writers in their teens, writers in their 20's & 30's, and writers who have been impacting the Bay Area community for decades not only through their published work, but also through their teaching, mentoring, and tireless advocacy of transformation through literature.
