Being Human: Together Afar

Creative Writers Workshop 2020

Being Human: Together Afar is Emerson’s Pre-College literary magazine for the Creative Writing Program with a twist: no one saw each other in person. The only thing that connected us—besides Zoom—was the power of writing. From creative nonfiction to comedy writing to slam poetry to fiction to graphic novels to scripts, there is something for you.

The diverse and interesting varieties of interpretations of the script in all its technical aspects shared today reflected the creative freedom and safe space you created for students. Thrilling, and of course, just what we want for developing creative minds. That being said, our daughter 's interest in this field has been affirmed by her participation in this program, and by your mentorship. We are so grateful.
