Event description
This creative writing workshop will teach skills and techniques for developing writing in support of social justice.

About this event

The past year has seen our entire world change, from the COVID-19 pandemic, to the global protests against racial violence and police brutality, to mass shootings, more racially-motivated violence, and on and on. Writers should be at the forefront of creating positive change for their communities.

As writers, we practice world-building as part of our craft. This workshop will focus on writing the world you want to live in. Participants will focus on a social issue about which they feel passionate, and will develop a writing project that they will develop over the course of the workshop.

Participants will discuss techniques for researching social justice issues, collecting stories and integrating them into creative work. They will practice weaving personal experience with research and other's stories to create a moving and compelling work of art. The workshop will culminate with a final project. Throughout the workshop, we will discuss avenues for publishing and sharing our work with the world.

Classes will be held weekly on Mondays, from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM, on June 21, 28, and July 12, 19, 26. (No class meeting on July 5). Workshop sessions will be held via Zoom video conferencing.
