January 2017: 

Waterline’s January event was unique. We had the members of the Teen Writers and Artists Group come up, one after the other with no intros, and perform their poetry, spoken word, and even music. Therefore the videos are in a slightly different format than usual. We divided up the January event into three parts.

Teen Writers & Artists Part 1
Teen Writers & Artists Part 2
Teen Writers & Artists Part 3
