Donegal

A Transatlantic Youth Writers Project

Where I'm From

Online

This summer Donegal County Council Cultural Services worked with Chicago based Young Chicago Authors (YCA) to create a transatlantic youth writers workshop. 12 young people from Donegal Youth Service and the KidsOwn young writers group joined a cohort of 12 young people from the YCA summer artistic internship program.  

They came together over Zoom for a workshop hosted by YCA artistic director and teaching artist Kevin Coval in an exchange session which incorporated a poetry writing prompt centered on themes of identity and home. The recording of this facilitated discussion about youth culture of Chicago and Donegal and their creative share out has been made into a short film to be screened on Culture Night.
