The seasonal transition from fall to winter can challenge an aspiring writer’s inspiration, but that hasn’t stopped the literary artists at the Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts (Charter Arts) from prospering. The school added the literary arts major in 2015. The diverse curriculum that includes such courses as media studies, character development, screenwriting, and children’s literature, provides ambitious writers with opportunities to hone in on their writing skills and develop their authorial voices.
