NYWW Writing to Save the World
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)
