Linking Art Through Transformative Programs!
The goal of The Arts facet is to increase the knowledge and appreciation of creative writing through educational and engaging writing experiences with a group of students at Central High School. The students will be engaged in the Young Masters’ Writers Program, which promotes participation, pride, and achievement in creative writing among high school students of African ancestry. The students will be interacting with local published authors and college professors to gain useful tips and insights about the art of writing. After completion of the first mentorship program, students will enter The Links, Inc. 2020-2021 National Young Master’s Writers Competition. The unique voices of competition entrants shed light on their lives, covering topics such as bullying, heritage, love, community, history, pop culture, and politics. By encouraging budding authors and poets, the program seeks to develop a cadre of young and future writers whose work will continue to make an impact long after the competition is over. Ninety high school students have become published writers.
