Hidden Scrapbook


And that’s the story of how Nichelle Nichols stuck with Star Trek after the first season.


"Everything I’ve ever done, every choice I’ve ever made, every terrible and wonderful thing that’s ever happened to me… It’s all led me to right here, this moment… With you.

Tomorrow’s stories start in all sorts of places: on the drive to work, or at the movie theater. One constant source of inspiration? The classrooms that tackle NaNoWriMo through our Young Writers Program. YWP educator Christina Brodersen tells us how writing and publishing a book can be a life-changing moment for her students:

I’d love to take full credit for initiating the Young Writers Program at Zurich International School (ZIS) but the reality is that in 2010, a year before I started, a small group of Grade 5 children had participated in YWP with another teacher.

I was thrilled when I realised that the school had not only tried YWP out but found it too valuable to drop again. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like writing isn’t already supported at our school: they teach creative writing from kindergarten. But because it’s part of the school curriculum, writing is assigned within a pre-set structure and with a specific purpose, e.g. writing about a school trip in the past tense, or making sure you cover five activities.

With YWP, the students are allowed to write freely, telling their story without having to worry about anything but telling it well, their choice of subject, genre, story arc, and culmination. And we as mentors simply do what we can to guide, encourage and motivate them to see it through to the end.
