Several years ago, the Dialogue Arts Project travelled to Atlanta, GA for the first of what would be multiple workshops and trainings with University Housing at Georgia State University. The following reflection was offered by Shannon Corey, GSU’s fabulous Assistant Director for Community and Staff Development.
The following essay is by Kari Henry, a 10th grade student at the Academy for Young Writers who participated in the Dialogue Arts Project’s first-ever 36-week elective for high school students. Composed as the introduction for We’re All Quite Mad Here, a class anthology that served as the culminating project for the 2012-2013 school year, Kari talks about her own writing as well as the writing of her classmates, the experience of engaging with her peers in dialogue around difficult subject matter, and how the DAP elective impacted her ability to “take risks” as a writer.
