Writing in the Margins, An Eight-Week Activism Workshop Series

“Difference must not be merely tolerated, but seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark.” -Audre Lorde


Thursdays @ 6:30-9:45 p.m.    /    April 2-May 21    /    Fort Greene, Brooklyn

8 Weeks / Suggested Sliding Scale Donation: $80-$160

NY Writers Coalition and Apogee Journal are thrilled to announce Writing in the Margins, an eight-week activism workshop series that will explore the politics of identity and social justice in, and through, creative writing.


Each session will encompass both critical discussion and writing.  The critical discussion will address a variety of topics including race, gender, intersectionality, privilege, and allyship. The creative writing component will be a NYWC-style workshops in which writers respond to writing prompts during a sustained, reflective writing time, followed by non-obligatory sharing and responses to the work read. Guest poets, writers, and activists will join us throughout the eight weeks and will conclude with a live reading of participants’ work.

Brooklyn writers of all genres, experience levels, ages, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

A suggested sliding scale donation of $80- $160 is requested for the eight week course. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and applicants will not be given preference by their ability to pay.


Apogee Writing & Activism Workshop Series is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
