Discover point-of-view writing that challenges assumptions of “expert voice.”
The rise of online writing, communities, and activism has broadened audiences and created new venues for voices and writers. Readers are hungry for work that connects personal experiences to larger issues with transparency, vulnerability, and personality. This workshop will focus on point-of-view writing that challenges assumptions of “expert voice” and pushes the boundaries of what issue-based writing can be while encouraging participants to connect their passions and stories with the platforms and audiences most accessible to them.
This workshop will be presented via Zoom. Tuition for the 2-hour workshop is $40. Write On members receive a 10% discount. To become a member, please click here. To register online for this workshop, please click here. For other registration options, please call 920.868.1457.
