Each summer, Spring Creek Gardens‘ youth residents and summer youth interns participate in a creative writing project. The project is a partnership with Lincoln Center with a goal of compiling and publishing a creative writing anthology that reflects the thoughts and ideas of the youth residents and their community.
Content for Anthology is created during writing workshops that are a part of Spring Creek Gardens’ summer programming. The creative writing workshops take place in the recreation center and are facilitated by The Domain Companies and Spring Creek Gardens staff members. Lincoln Center then prints and distributes Anthology works during Spring Creek Gardens annual “Family Day Celebration.”
Youth residents can present their work on stage as part of Lincoln Center’s “Out Of Doors” concert series. Thousands of New Yorkers attend this summer concert series, and a special tent is dedicated to the youth writers from Spring Creek Gardens. This partnership is valued by participants, their families, and the community.
