Reading Marginalized Voices


Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

JY17-N15

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: Read. We’ll look at fiction, non-fiction, and poetry by writers from marginalized groups, and engage in discussion about why it’s important to read the work of writers from diverse backgrounds. We’ll look at our own backgrounds and our own writing to see where our voices fit into the greater narrative, and we’ll explore resources to help make sure we keep ourselves informed and well-read. Special attention will be given to accessing a diverse pool of writers in our local community. Special guests will enhance the experience of this important workshop!
