What's Your 9/11 Story?

Friday, March 18, 2011

The 9/11 Generation Speaks: This spring and summer, WNYC’s Radio Rookies, is holding a workshop to help young people tell stories about growing up in the New York area since 9/11. We are looking for people for whom 9/11 was, in some way, a pivotal moment in their growth. Ideally, participants will range from kids who lost family members to those impacted less directly by 9/11 and its aftermath: maybe they lived near the World Trade Center; perhaps the attacks changed their lives because of their parents' line of work or their family's religion; maybe their own convictions have been challenged or led them to take some action. We know that 9/11 affected different people in many different ways, and we hope to be surprised by some of the stories young people have to tell.
