WritersCorps: Creative Writing as Liberatory Education
San Francisco’s WritersCorps program has been empowering youth through creative writing for 20 years by placing writers in schools, community programs, and juvenile hall for 3-year-long writing residencies. This panel discussion will focus on using creative writing with youth as a liberatory, and even transgressive, educational method.
The panel of three current WritersCorps teaching artists – Sandra Garcia Rivera, Harold Terezón, and Annie Rovzar – will be moderated by WritersCorps training coordinator Minna Dubin. Panelists will discuss techniques they use in their workshops, including how they teach information through interactive, non-traditional practices, ways they honor varying experiences in a group, and how they hold and acknowledge intense emotions in the classroom. We will have some great resources and free merchandise to give away.
Please stop by our WritersCorps information table.
