The ‘Strong Voices’ writing workshop for young adults has published a literary magazine of selected writings. The workshop, held in July 2012, focused on honing voice and message with the guidance of local writer/teacher Holly Lorincz.
A handful of writers, ranging from 12 to 20 sat in a hot room, smelling the Pacific Ocean steaming under a July sun. Instead of swimming, they hoisted cheap pens, covering page after page of spiral notebooks with ink, spilling a wide range of emotions and ideas into the open. The outcome? A truly inspired collection of writing. Click here to read the work of some of those students.
