The Chapman University/Orange High School Literacies Partnership serves to provide authentic literacy opportunities for students at our neighborhood school. Activities include the Young Writers Workshop Series, in collaboration with The John Fowles Center for Creative Writing; the Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest, in collaboration with the Rodgers Center for Holocaust Education; and other projects developed around literacy events on campus.
The John Fowles Center/Orange High School Partnership for Young Writers began in Spring 2011. High school students participate in writing workshops conducted by graduate students in the MFA and MA programs and are invited to the annual Literary Forum.
Orange High School Principal Ernest Gonzalez fully supports the partnership and the Young Writers Workshop Series, welcoming Professor Osborn and the graduate students to OHS to talk with his students about the workshops. English teachers Marianne Petersen and Alice Prothero are instrumental in serving as liaisons for the Partnership.
