Pipeline Project’s Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break – Deadline Extension


Stay­ing in the area for your spring break? Look­ing to ven­ture out of Seat­tle but stay in Washington?

Then the Pipeline Project may have a great expe­ri­ence for you! We are cur­rently look­ing for UW under­grad­u­ates to vol­un­teer in a lit­er­acy arts project in rural com­mu­ni­ties through­out Wash­ing­ton for Alter­na­tive Spring Break 2014.

UW stu­dents will work with stu­dents in an ele­men­tary, mid­dle, or high school to brain­storm ideas for a story, write a rough draft, edit the draft, and pub­lish the story in a book. Stu­dents will then illustrate their pub­lished book. A cul­mi­nat­ing fes­ti­val of the pub­lished works will be held at each site.

Sites range from the Olympic Penin­sula to East­ern Wash­ing­ton and include Forks, Oroville, Mat­tawa, Har­rah, Curlew, Tonas­ket, Omak, Top­pen­ish and Long Beach.
