Why PageSlayers?

pageslayers_definition

•    Because creative writing and access to healthy forms of expression should be cultivated in all kids, everywhere;
•    Because when our campers learn about poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels, they learn about themselves and the world at large;
•    They learn about different cultures through characters from Puerto Rico, Vietnam, Mars, and everywhere in between;
•    They learn that they can become the next Toni Morrison’s, Edwidge Danticat's, and Junot Díaz’s. That their words should be written, read, and celebrated;
•    That they have the power to create their own narratives and change the future;
•    Creative writing positively influences campers’ cognitive, behavioral, health, social, and economic well-being;
•    Imaginative writing fosters life skills like self-discipline, critical thinking, and teamwork;
•    Writing yields positive benefits like pleasure, peace, and gratification.
