The Hidden Force 

A new short film noir written and directed by Denis P., PPAS High School Junior. 

But writing is about discovering that anything is possible, about rediscovering what can beinvented, reinvented and redefined in how we see the world around us. The Know has that spirit in its many programs which pair its mentors, professional writers, with young students in public schools to work on their writing.

-Crystal Skillman, Playwright

I wanted to write and let you know how grateful I am that there is a program such as yours. We have always encouraged our children to use their imaginations and creativity and I think it is wonderful that there are organizations who formally recognize a child’s creative writing ability.

-B. Pooley, Parent, Cedar Rapids, IA
