The Power of Words: Political Writing
There is no doubt words can change the world - they can inspire revolutions and bring down dictatorships. They can bring freedom to the masses and ensure every voice is heard. They are the most powerful tool we possess – and this workshop will teach you how to harness that power and make change happen.
Learn about various political writing techniques and create your own works, while drawing inspiration from writers like James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, and Claudia Rankine. Connect your own experiences to the wider political world around you – and learn how to approach difficult subjects with joy and courage.
Bring your passion, opinions, and determination, and let’s make the world a better place one word at a time!** This workshop is made possible through a partnership with Ava's Smile, in honor of Ava Hecht's legacy of creativity and compassion. **
