Gemini Ink’s mission is to teach the craft of writing to people of all skill levels so they can bring their stories to life. We envision a world where all people experience the power of the writing arts. Our strategic vision is to teach 12,000 people how to bring their stories to life by 2022. We believe writing that story is powerful. When people learn the four pillars of writing, they learn the power of the craft of writing. When they learn the power of the craft of writing, they bring their stories to life.
Gemini Ink’s programs serve children, youth and adults across San Antonio. We serve an estimated 4500 participants annually: 83% take our programs free of charge, and 67% of those served are people of color. With 25% of households in the city under Federal poverty and a population 63% Latino and 8% African American, our outreach into all corners of the city is especially significant. For 27 years, we’ve increased access to the writing arts, grown literacy, and built joy in and engagement with reading and writing.
