Did you know that Kelly Writers House actively recruits talented young writers, the same way that a coach would recruit a promising student athlete? (Learn more here!)
Jamie-Lee Josselyn (C’05) visits schools, writing programs, English teachers, college fairs, summer writing institutes, and after-school arts programs for talented youth around the country in search of great writers.
We target especially those areas that are underserved or geographically isolated, spreading the word that for smart kids, an arts-rich Penn education is a real possibility, regardless of circumstance. We want these kids to know that they can count on our help.
This #GivingTuesday, please consider making a donation to our Student Recruitment Fund, which helps Jamie-Lee do this good work. Every little bit helps!
(P.S. This photo was taken by Jamie-Lee herself on a recruitment trip to the New England Young Writers Conference!)
