The Storefront Project is a new program that provides free drop-in creative writing workshops and one-on-one writing and language arts tutoring for middle- and high-schoolers. The Bend Bulletin recently reported on the Storefront Project. Click here to read all about it.

Conveniently located in downtown Bend in Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe at 135 NW Minnesota Ave. (thank you Terri Cumbie!), the Storefront Project aims to appeal to all segments of young writers, including traditional and alternative school students, home schoolers, homeless students, and everyone who is interested in developing creative writing skills.

Students can drop in any time and participate in a workshop on Mondays or Thursdays between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. Individual tutoring is available after the workshops.
