The Writers Guild Initiative continued its thriving partnership with United We Dream – the largest youth led immigrant organization in the country — this past December. Along with United We Dream, we hosted a group of extraordinary young people from all across the country at the Writers Guild in New York City. They were joined by mentors, Richard Dresser, Mel Nieves, Craig Mums Grant, Aladgin Ullah, Colleen Werthman, James Anthony Tyler, Ren Dara Santiago and Stephen Ruddy for a weekend of creativity and writing.
They will be returning in the winter of 2020 for a follow-up workshop.
Participant Alejandra R. said, “ I really learned to step out of my comfort zone with writing. Gaining experience with playwriting was tough but rewarding. Getting to hear the deeply kept stories by others was truly so impactful and I’m so grateful.”
