Firewriters is one of three Storycatchers residential programs, at three separate juvenile justice facilities. Storycatchers began developing Firewriters in 2011, in response to a request from the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice for a program for boys modeled after the success of Fabulous Females at Warrenville. With Firewriters, Storycatchers engages boys incarcerated at IYC-Chicago in the process of writing, producing and performing original musicals inspired by their stories every year.
