This Friday, 36 Baltimore City middle and high school students participating in Baltimore Schools Young Writers’ Summer Studio will share new fiction, poetry and non-fiction work from their week at camp. The Summer Studio is a program of Writers in Baltimore Schools, a project started by 2008 OSI Community Fellow Patrice Hutton.

The reading will take place on Friday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse. More info at the event’s Facebook page.

Last week, students had the chance to interview local politicians, activists, artists, writers and entrepreneurs (including OSI-Baltimore Communications Director Evan Serpick) at the Impact Hub. Then at camp, the students had an opportunity to work with Baltimore City Paper Editor Brandon Soderberg and Assistant Editor Lisa Snowden McCray to turn those interviews into profiles that will appear in a September issue of City Paper.

Hutton founded Writers in Baltimore Schools to help Baltimore City students develop literary and communication skills through in-school, after-school and summer programming.
