I always liked summer Best because of the Frogs at dawn and the Cicadas at night It’s very peaceful and Smells fresh you Can hear the coyotes At night and see the Deer grazing during The day you hear The chickens clucking And the dogs barking You hear the trees in The wind and smell Fresh cut grass while you sit Outside enjoying the Sunlight on your skin
About Writers in Residence
Naveah is a participant in Writers in Residence, an Ohio nonprofit that teaches creative writing to youth who are incarcerated to empower their voices and assist in their re-entry into society. Writers in Residence partners with juvenile detention centers in Ohio “to reduce the recidivism rates of our residents and participate in the transformation of the juvenile justice system.”
According to the ACLU, nearly 60,000 youth under age 18 in the United States are incarcerated in juvenile facilities. Writers in Residence strives to increase literacy levels, build self-esteem, provide positive peer mentorship, cultivate young writers into published authors, and advocate for youth who are incarcerated in Ohio.
