NYWW Writing to Save the World writing class

Friends! I'm offering a fun 6 week online generative writing class with social justice themes through New York Writers Workshop this January just in time for the inauguration called "Writing to Save the World." Great holiday gift for an elder you're trying to get to write her memoir or a young person starting to find her voice or a fun bonding activity for you and a friend who live in different time zones. Discounted Early bird registration until Jan 3 https://bpt.me/4846105 

Writing to Save the World: How do we use our writing to create real world change? How do we find our voices and get our message out? How do we use writing to touch, inspire, persuade, and provoke readers to action? Learn simple but powerful methods to get the ideas out of our heads and onto the page. We will consider different forms including Op-Ed, persuasive essay, spoken word, social media, art. Part writing, part activism, a lot of heart, this class aspires to use the written word to create the change you want to see in the world. Bring a notebook and a pen.

Online (ZoomLive/synchronous sessions): Six Sundays, Jan 17, 24, 31, Feb 7, 14, 21, 2021 3-5pm EST (12N PST, 2 PM CST)
