Calla Ruff ’23 is participating in The Telling Room’s Young Emerging Authors program
Join us in celebrating Calla Ruff ’23! Calla is participating in The Telling Room’s Young Emerging Authors program this year. Every fall, four student authors are selected for a yearlong fellowship where they will write, edit, and publish their own books! They will be working on a collection of personal poetry inspired by a year of learning to live intentionally in the midst of a pandemic. From a semester in the mountains of North Carolina to their transition back to “normal life” in Maine, this lyric “deep dive into the messiness of being seventeen” explores healing from trauma and mental illness and learning to find happiness in daily life.
