Funded by the Summer Youth Program Fund, the Indiana Writers Center's "Building a Rainbow" creative writing program serves a diverse group of young people in Indianapolis, improving their writing and literacy skills through a series of creative writing exercises that teach them how to write the stories of their own lives. Working one-on-one, Writers Center instructors, student teachers, and volunteers help the young writers get their words on the page and also encourage them to reflect upon the experiences they've written about, considering how what they've learned can help them make their dreams come true. "I Remember" is a collection of writings completed during the Indiana Writers Center summer youth writing programs, along with observations about teaching and the prompts used to elicit the writing.
