Interview with Adelle Young

By Anna Chalmers

About the Author:

Adelle Yeung is a fantasy author, voice actor, and digital artist. When she’s not writing or recording, she enjoys sewing costumes, baking sweets, and escaping on video game adventures.  She lives in California with a cat that dreams of eating the pet bird.

Interviews with EmersonWRITES Instructors

EmersonWRITES is a free, college-style creative writing program offered to Greater Boston students in grades eight through twelve, taught by current Emerson MA and MFA students. EmersonWRITES fosters individual voices and empowerment through written words, access to opportunities, and self-representation. EmersonWRITES was also featured in this summer’s issue of Community Literacy Journal with a mini-anthology of student work in “Persistence and Creativity: EmersonWRITES Celebrates 11 Years with Young Poets and Writers of Boston.” Due to the pandemic, EmersonWRITES switched to a virtual format, but now, to everyone’s excitement, their in-person program is relaunching.

Teaching creative writing is to teach listening, community building, and how to critically think about art.
