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. 


*If you would like to participate but paying the full registration fee would be a hardship, let Arlyn and Jackie know at Net proceeds from registration will be donated to the Elite Striders Drill Team and Drum Corps Positive Youth Organization which nurtures the lives of at-risk youth in Lake County, IL through culturally-appropriate community-based services.
