Tandem Grows Writers

This 50th Friday, we're honoring Tandem writers and the many ways Tandem helps students find their voices. From 5th grade mastery projects and Sophomore Seminars to creative writing assignments and our culminating Senior Projects, Tandem graduates learn how to turn a phrase to make themselves heard - eloquently, honestly, and powerfully. Last weekend, as part of our 50th celebration, we hosted the online Life of a Writer event, a panel discussion featuring professional alum authors Nathalie Heyward, TFS ‘76 (pen name Nin Andrews); Rebecca Morgan Frank, TFS ‘87; Meredith Cole, TFS ‘88; and current parent author Marc Boston. Moderated by Peter Gaines, Tandem's Upper School Director and a poet himself, the event provided some great insight into writing, inspirations, challenges, and so much more. If you missed the online event, use this link to watch a recording of it: https://vimeo.com/542790196. It's a great reminder of why it's so important to teach young people to find and use their voices. #50Friday #Tandem50
