The Bronx Write Bus is a totally free summer adventure that helps Bronx youth, ages 12-18, discover new interests, make friends and gives voice to their creative instincts. For five weeks in July and August, the free Bronx Write Bus rides to arts and cultural events in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Professional writers, visual artists and performers come along to make the experience even interesting. On Wednesday and Thursday of each week, hands-on workshops inspire the Bronx Writers to create projects that are posted on BronxArts.org and collected in a print anthology. A healthy snack is always included
