In spring 2014, BURNAWAY partnered with Hammonds House Museum and the Wren’s Nest to produce a writing mentorship program for Atlanta-area high school students. Over the course of four consecutive Saturdays in April and May, the students met for the art writing intensive. Students learned about various ways to respond to and critique art, visited MOCA GA and Mason Murer Gallery, heard from leaders in art writing and art-related fields, and built their writing portfolios for college. They worked with writing mentors to produce and edit their writing which we are pleased to publish here.
