Big boost from the Writers’ Foundation

Dear Editor:

Thank you for the scholarship enabling me to attend the Digital Storytelling workshop presented by the Center for Digital Storytelling and the Aspen Writers’ Foundation last week. This workshop not only taught me the fundamentals of video production, but also the basics of good storytelling. The instructors helped us turn our stories into engaging, thought-provoking digital shorts and gave us the tools to express ourselves through this medium in the future.

I am already looking forward to the next school year, when I can share this powerful mode of expression with my students. I feel so lucky to work and live in a town where opportunities like this are possible and where generosity abounds. Thanks again for this amazing experience!
