Five students from the Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center (SWIJDC) have been selected to have their creative writing pieces featured in The Cabin’s CAMBIA Anthology, which is set to be released next week during a celebration and reading at the Linen Building in downtown Boise.  The CAMBIA Anthology highlights the year’s best writing from students across the Treasure Valley who are involved in The Cabin’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program.  The students from SWIJDC selected for the CAMBIA Anthology are as follows:

Name                Title of Selected Piece
Daniel                East Side Park
Juliene               How to Survive in Juvie
Kolomaile         Tonga
Lukas                Burn Slow
Makayla            I Am Strong

The SWIJDC has been involved in the WITS program for over ten years, and each year, the center publishes a book featuring the creative writing pieces from the students involved in the program.  Students from SWIJDC have been selected to be featured in the CAMBIA Anthology for several consecutive years.

The five students and their families, along with staff and teachers from the SWIJDC have been invited to attend the CAMBIA reading and celebration on May 9 at the Linen Building in downtown Boise.  The event, which runs from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., is free to attend.  For more information, please visit
