The “Writers in the Community” program has a powerful impact on young lives. In 2018, under the superb leadership of program coordinator Sarah Haggard, our team of writers presented 16 ten-week workshops in 10 different community organizations or schools in Montreal, Lachine, Laval, the Laurentians, and the Lower North Shore (Harrington Harbour and Chevery). In all, we worked with over 216 young people in groups small enough to really have an impact.
