Our mission for Workshops is to build community while supporting students in exploring new and creative ways to use writing to discover themselves, practice self-care, hone their storytelling skills, support college access, and apply their critical thinking skills. The goal is to redefine a student's relationship to writing so that it can be seen as a fun and useful tool, rather than an academic chore.
We are seeking a Teaching Artist to lead our seven-week virtual Journalism writing workshop with an emphasis on Social Justice issues.
During our seven-week program, students learn to brainstorm, research, write, and edit their own news articles culminating in a published digital newspaper. The student’s accomplishments are celebrated with a release party.
