In our "quick writes", the teachers also wrote about dogs and babies, loneliness and "lost love", bullies and heroes. I love how writing can be a great equalizer, a common ground for adults and young people to share.
Yesterday, we all were a bit sad to finish the WriteOn! series. We knew something good had happened. We had laughed together, shared thoughts through our writing and talking, and learned something new about each person, adults and young people. We had taken risks and explored new things.
