Writing through Social Difference: Using Words to Communicate and Connect Across Divides
Do you crave meaningful conversations about your community and your role in it but don’t know where to go? This community workshop leans on writing as a basic yet strong form of communication and a starting point to explore meaningful dialogue. Participants will consider effective communication techniques, explore tough questions and discover how sharing our collective experiences and roles in a diverse society offers opportunities to connect (and reconnect) us.

Teen Writers Workshop
A one-time or multi-session event designed to support and encourage young writers in their creative endeavors through creative writing instruction, time and space to explore creative boundaries, and peer collaboration and feedback. Together we discuss aspects of creative writing (such as plot, setting, character development, etc.), with time to write freely and talk about works-in-progress. The workshop structure may fluctuate based on students’ needs and interests, as well as the number of students signed up.
