An immersive playwriting program for at-risk youth in Portland, Oregon empowers and transforms the lives of its participants. We find out how as we follow eight students from the first writing exercises—through which they learn to write from their own experiences—all the way through to directing professional actors in a performance of their work.
‘Writing Myself’ is a powerful film about transforming the lives of young people through empowering and encouraging them to share the stories of their lives. The ability to understand and tell our stories is a critical aspect to being a human being in community with others and everyone would benefit from having this kind of support and experience.”
