Spells Writing Lab partners with a diverse mix of arts organizations, educational agencies, and out-of-school programs throughout the Philadelphia area. These relationships allow us to spread the word about our programs to new audiences and approach literacy through different lenses. For example, as part of Mayor Nutter’s PhillyGoes2College initiative, Spells hosts free citywide workshops to help high school students write their college application essays.

In Spring 2016, Spells will be providing six weekly after-school writing workshops at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill Branch and during the enrichment program at Hope Partnership for Education School in North Philly. Contact Program Director Elizabeth Encarnacion for more information about bringing Spells to your after-school program.
