Long Way Down

Jennifer Bradbury joins Matt and Alvin for this special Catch-Up Podcast. In addition to being a UW Teaching Writer and the creator of the week-long intensive this summer at Juvenile Detention, Jen is the author of seven books and more to come. She teaches English at Burlington-Edison High School and lives in Burlington, Washington with her family.

We recorded in her classroom during free period, discussing Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds and the juvenile detention students that responded to it. Jen catches us up on a bit of the publishing process and Matt shares about UW’s fall newsletter, available now.

Note: We are a creative writing program serving at-risk populations. We do not broadcast names or identifying details of the students we work with.
