March 3-7, 2014, Sage Hill Writing sent Vancouver Spoken Word artist Zaccheus Jackson to La Ronge, Saskatchewan to lead writing and performance workshops with La Ronge youth from Senator Myles Venne School and Churchill Community High School. Sage Hill staff dropped in for a visit at the end of the week and were stunned by the work, confidence, and dedication of these young writers and how well they took to Zaccheus. Grinning ear to ear and full of stories from the week, Zaccheus was sent home with gifts, personal notes of thanks, and tons of hugs and smiles.
Thank you to Adele Meleca (Senator Myles Venne School) and Anne Dorion (Churchill Community High School) for their important work in keeping this program in La Ronge year after year and maintaining a youth Writing Club! Sage Hill is so pleased to have such enthusiastic community support for this programme.
