Creative Writing Workshop


SCAIR partners with PEN Center USA to provide creative writing workshops for SCAIR Participants.

Writing Workshop

Through PEN Center’s “Pen in the Classroom” Program, Participants take part in a 10-week community writing residency at SCAIR. At the end of the residency, Participants submit their completed writings, which are then compiled into a published anthology of their work. A final reading event is held to celebrate and honor the writers who contribute their work.

In the summer of 2013, Participants took part in a second writing workshop and completion of a new anthology, titling the book, “Women of the Round Dance.” A reading was held in the SCAIR Resource Center in January of 2014.

The original anthology, “Strong Medicine,” was completed in summer of 2011. A final reading was held at the Barona Resort and Casino in December of the same year. To view the video regarding “Strong Medicine” please click here.
