Special Fall Season Focus:  "STORY-PLAY" 
Thematic sessions invite children to face story-based ethical dilemmas, as they are supported in conveying their ideas on paper, and transforming  them into presentation. The goal is to grow a community of young ethical writers whose prose and poetry will take on the big social and environmental issues of their time.  
1st and 2nd Sundays are lead by Guest-teacher Deepali Srivastava, founder of Writefully Ours 
Other sessions are led by organizer, Audrey Kindred, with special guests and themes.
