AMANDA SABGA/Staff photo - Students and group leaders perform a dance at last week's community celebration to cap off this summer's Re-envisioning Lawrence writing program offered through Andover Rising Loaves, a new collaboration involving Phillips Academy of Andover, Lawrence History Center, and UMass Lowell.

LAWRENCE — The kids lined up in the Essex Street courtyard in Lawrence at noon last Friday, notebooks in hand, nervously waiting their turn.

Lorena German, a writing teacher from Andover Bread Loaf, a Phillips Academy outreach, told the 30 preteens to take a deep breath.

She took one herself, and let it out slowly, prompting the kids to do the same.

The reading would begin momentarily, she said. Thirty poems or stories from 30 students. Friends and family were in the audience, seated and standing in the sun and shade.
