Writing to Promote Marginalized Voices

 Registration is closed for this event
Wordcrafters presents a half-day workshop with Melissa Hart.

Nonfiction Workshop

In this polarizing political climate, there’s plenty a writer can do to ensure that underrepresented people and groups get their voices out into the world. This workshop will walk you through three genres–literary essay, profile, and social commentary–and look at how professional writers empower those from marginalized communities by showcasing their stories in print. We’ll look at published pieces that focus on people of various races and ethnicities, those who identify as LGBTQA, people without permanent addresses, those growing up in the foster care system, people with developmental and physical disabilities, and those with mental illnesses.
