TeenWrites Residency

Students at Milwaukee High School of the Arts participate in creative writing workshops to generate stories, poems and songs. Students work with teaching artists to either compose, stage or perform selected writing.

“With the TeenWrites Residency, students have a sense of empowerment and can feel as though their thoughts and feelings are validated.” –Drama Teacher at Milwaukee High School of the Arts

Students at the Milwaukee High School of the Arts created an original piece called TeenWrites Before and After with all original songs, monologues and scenes.  Nine Freshman English classes at Bay View High School created original pieces focused on Coming of Age. The students learned improv and music improv exercises to create these organic productions.
