Who We Are

Through our partnership with Richmond public high schools, Podium provides writing workshops for students that allow them an outlet for creative expression, while teaching essential college and career skills. We offer professional development for English teachers, with the hopes of creating an informed and encouraging atmosphere that inspires both students and teachers to focus on improving writing skills.
