Writing to Change the World — August 2-6

$249.00

Writing is not only a form of art but activism. The stories we tell are tools for shaping the kinds of communities we wish to see, and to belong to. From spoken word poetry to opinion essays, letters to the editor to a short story whose conflict inspires us to see our world anew, the written word allows authors everywhere to change the way people perceive one another, as well as the world around them. In this workshop, we’ll explore a range of writing styles that allow us to share our voices with the world, advocate for causes we care about, and, in the words of Gandhi, “Be the change [we] wish to see.”
