This workshop will support participants in coming to voice, recovering what has been silenced, and to empower each other. Explore craft through personal boundaries of beginnings, endings, power, community, country, environment, social and economic justice. Reflect and engage with how your writing impacts the world. This program led by Juanita Kirton, will be a step on a continuous journey of the intersections of social justice and writing.
