Today: Join a New Service Project: Writers in Residence

Are you interested in joining a new service opportunity at JCU? We are Writers in Residence, and we operate alongside and in relationship with The Carroll Ballers.

Writers in Residence will provide a creative writing workshop experience for the residents of the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) and Ohio Department of Youth Services (ODYS).

We will facilitate a weekly creative writing workshop with the residents to discuss poems, short stories, and other creative genres. The residents will have time to write, workshop, and share their own pieces inspired by the text of the week.

This program will run for 10 weeks, aligned with the weekly service schedule. Service will begin in early February.

The times for the program are as follows:

  • Women at JDC – Monday, 4:45-6:45 p.m.
  • Men at ODYS – Thursday, 5-7:30 p.m.

If you are interested in applying, please take a few minutes to fill out this application. Spots are limited. Thank you!
