Creative Community Writing Salon
Time & Location
About the Event
As part the Community Writing Engagement project by Ada Vilageliu-Diaz in the English Program, we would like to announce that she’ll start hosting the Creative Community Writing Salon (virtual) for students, faculty, staff, and community members. The focus of the virtual writing salon is to encourage participants to create new narratives and storytelling strategies in order to empower and support both new and experienced creative writers. The program specially encourages the telling of marginalized, silenced, or suppressed stories in our own voices such as those from immigrant, BIPOC, or LGTQB+ communities. Writings can be in English, Spanish, or any other languages.
Goals and Objectives:
· Use writing as reflective practice
· Help produce writing that empowers, liberates, and heals
· Provide a safe space for all voices and perspectives
· Create and strengthen our community
· Write, share, and support each other
· Inspire new literary voices
The workshops are designed for all skill levels. Each session will include a prompt and participants will have 30 minutes to write. At the end of each session, those who want to share their writing can do so. This will be a supportive space where writers can safely share work on any topic and support each other develop their craft and prepare their work for publication. We will meet on the second Friday of every month at 12:30 pm. This program is free and will be offered on WebEx.
The launch date is April 9th at 12:30 pm EST. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign in to participate.
