Young Women Writing for (a) Change® and the Music Resource Center of Cincinnati are collaborating in this unique camp for teens which combines writing, sharing, and discussion with the option to learn about creating an audio narrative. Students will write and share their individual stories, poems, and essays with an ear towards recording them for narrative radio in the style of Youth Radio, This American Life, Radio Lab, or Snap Judgement.

This series incorporates WWf(a)C practices to ensure a safe space where each voice is heard and honored. The facilitators will provide prompts, poems, and other resources to help students choose and develop their writing and stories. Here's one of Olivia Linn's podcasts: https://soundcloud.com/olivia-linn/leaders-and-readers-of-rogers-road-final

MRC Staff will join the writing circles to teach about the process of recording, and ways of using personal devices to record. A visit to the MRC recording studio will be included (optional). Students may have the opportunity to broadcast their podcasts on Cincinnati's only teen radio, 95.7 fm, run by MRC. http://mrccinci.org/957mrc/
