Min. 5 / Max.15 participants
Writing can be a powerful tool for personal and social change. The recent coronavirus pandemic, our nation’s long history of racial trauma—and the confluence of the two—have many of us searching for a path forward. During this workshop you will be invited to discuss short readings and write from prompts designed to enhance self-awareness and help us create a racially just and compassionate society. No prior writing experience needed.
Co-facilitated by Jacqueline Nicole Harris and Arlyn Miller. Jackie is a blogger, award-winning author, and contest judge for 10th Dems. Arlyn is a writer, educator, and the founding director of Poetic License Press.
