Write with Us
We believe that expressive writing is a powerful rehabilitative method that helps young people build a skill to help them learn more about themselves, and to cope during and after the difficult times in their lives.
Real Poets terms run for ten weeks, and are hosted at Turning Point Community Programs in south Sacramento. Participation is open to all Sacramento youth who want to write real poems about real life.
We schedule for one-hour slots at 4 and 5 pm on Thursdays. We see some young poets only once, but many come back and write with us again. There is no commitment required for more than one session, and young poets can sign up as often as the slots are open.
