Thirty-nine of Savannah’s public middle school students will take to the stage of the Historic Savannah Theatre, May 16, 6:30 pm, for the Deep Speaks book launch and literary reading series.
The authors, among 114 young people who completed Deep Center’s spring semester Young Author Project, were selected by their peers and Deep’s volunteer writing fellows to read their original poems and short prose.
Works by all participating students will be published in four anthologies, which will be on sale for $12 each at the Deep Speaks event and circulated within the Live Oak Public Library system.
All book sale proceeds support Deep’s creative writing workshops.
Deep Center is a local nonprofit that provides free, fun, and rigorous writing workshops for public school students in Savannah.
Deep Speaks readers are as follows, listed by school:
Isle of Hope
Caitlin Marie Kirby
Tuon Vi Nguyen
