Young Writers from the Edge Showcase


A new crop of gifted young writers will be presenting their work at a Young Writers from the Edge Showcase. High school students from three different Toronto regions who participated in DD’s Young Writers from the Edge program worked with professional writer-mentors to develop their writing skills in different forms, including fiction, drama, and poetry/spoken word. Based on the work developed through these workshops, the youth will present their pieces alongside their mentors at a celebratory reading event.
