Writing Workshop Series for Young Asian American Women

Thursdays, starting February 11th, 2010, 4:30-6:00 PM
@ Project Reach NYC

Write to Resist is a writing workshop series for Asian American young women (ages 14-18) to use writing as a creative vehicle to explore issues of identity and violence. This workshop series offers a rare and safe space for Asian American young women to invent together and explore multiple ways to empower themselves. Throughout the seven workshops, participants will 1) collaborate on a zine featuring their art and written work 2) have the opportunity to showcase their work in an end of the series final performance. All levels of experience welcome!
This sounds like a really cool opportunity for young women looking for a place to share their voices. For more information about the workshop series and how to apply, visit the Write to Resist website here. For specific questions, feel free to email: writetoresistworkshop@gmail.com.
