Since 2009, Barrio Writers has worked to empower teens through creative writing instruction, higher education and cultural arts programming.
At Origins, one of our goals is to publish the work of writers and artists who might not otherwise have access to publishing. This has given rise to PROJECT AMPLIFY!, a new initiative and collaboration with nonprofit arts programs around the globe. Here's the inaugural PROJECT AMPLIFY! issue featuring poetry and art from Xhosa students in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
