Power in the Pages

Foregrounding Equity in Your Writing

Where and how do conversations about power show up in the way we craft our stories? To respond to this question, this event will help guide writers through exercises that interrogate their influences emphasizing how chronology, relationships and representation can help us to build story with equity and social justice at the forefront of our writing.

To register, please email venue@firestorm.coop with the subject title "Power in the Pages."
