The Telling Room in Portland, Maine is excited to announce the opening of their 2012-2013 season of programming for young writers age 6-18. Their dynamic field trips and afterschool workshops are designed to engage all students through active writing studio experiences. They've just posted their fall semester of free afterschool workshops and are currently scheduling 2.5 hour literary field trips at their beautiful space on Commercial Street in Portland.
The Telling Room is able to offer substantial discounts on field trips for multiple bookings of three or more from one school as well as for schools with Title I designations. Teachers needing to defray the cost of travel to The Telling Room can access funding through the Maine Arts Commission's Ticket to Ride transportation grant. The Ticket to Ride grant process consists of a one-page application with rapid response and approval by Arts Commission staff.
