Missoula Writing Collaborative (Missoula, MT 59807-9237)

Free Verse Project

The creation of a series of writers’ residencies at high schools, on Native American reservations, and in juvenile detention centers, and the subsequent public presentation of these young writers’ works in community dialogues.

Free Verse Project will partner with Second Season and Arts Without Boundaries to bring writers and humanities teachers to work with kids in schools, on reservations, and in juvenile detention centers across Montana. Our organizations will make the resulting collaborative projects available to the public, with the goal of organizing community conversations in response to the students’ work and ideas.
