Youth Writing Workshops with Sruthi Narayanan, artist in residence

Artist in residence Sruthi Narayanan is leading an outdoor creative writing workshops with middle school-aged students on Tuesday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lower Quarry picnic area of Memorial Park. Sruthi sees this as a unique opportunity for area students to ask direct questions and learn about the writing process, but also see firsthand that there is no artist “archetype” or one-size-fits-all way of creating. Masks are encouraged!

Originally from New Jersey, Sruthi Narayanan is a fiction writer and aspiring novelist pursuing her MFA at the University of Minnesota. While in residence at the Anderson Center August 16 – 30, Sruthi will be working on a collection of short stories around consent and the idea of “karma as justice,” set within the world of competitive classical Carnatic singing. She is currently a writing tutor & instructor for students K – 12 and has a personal attachment to the idea of mentorship as community service. Sruthi believes in the importance of paving the way for future generations of “makers” through sharing firsthand knowledge and experiences.
