Project Title:

It’s Elementary!

Grant Amount:

$105,000

Badgerdog Literary Publishing’s mission is to publish work that furthers our culture’s collective vision and to equip at-risk children with the language skills necessary to create literary art from their joy and their jeopardy. With the Impact Austin grant, Badgerdog’s "It's Elementary!" program will bring the art of creative writing and the joy of seeing their work in print to 4th graders at all eight East Austin elementary schools that feed into Eastside Memorial High School. Each school will be assigned a paid "Writer in Residence” (a published author) who will work with each class for 25 weeks, teaching the children to use a wide variety of literary forms such as poetry, playwriting, fiction and creative non-fiction.
