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)

'He is so white that as he tries to dip a toe into my world and name drop prominent Asian Americans, all he hits are ones I have gotten into big public fights with.
And I know, I know #notallwhitepeople. And I know, I know, some of my best friends are white.
He is so white.
And somehow in spite of myself, he makes me smile.'
