The young writers at our program with Oakland Leaf at Bret Harte Elementary in Oakland have come up with some interesting poetry this fall. They have also taken a look at how the world would be by writing through the lens of "If I ruled the world".  Our writers have played with personification and tapped into their own creativity during free writing time. Click on each piece to read their creations!

Creative writing excerpts: A winter night in Tokyo, a fiery inferno and a sibling conflict come to life in these stories.
