Rowana Miller, Senior in Penn Sociology, Launches "Cosmic Writers", an Accessible Creative Writing Non-Profit for K-12 Children

Cosmic Writers provides high-quality, accessible creative writing education to K–12 children. Their flagship program, a series of virtual writing workshops called Word Camp, began at the Penn Kelly Writers House in 2020. It has since served over 200 campers, teaching them genres from dystopian fiction to slam poetry. They have also begun working with educators to pilot in-person after-school programs in schools. With this programming, children from all socioeconomic backgrounds come together to improve their literacy, express themselves clearly and effectively, and develop their critical and creative thinking skills.
