Safety for Writers
Physical safety and managing stress from online harassment are important for many writers. Particularly for writers of color, LGBTQ writers, trans writers, women and femme writers, and survivors who write about trauma, publishing work sometimes elicits retaliatory harassment or challenges to our physical safety. We will review tools and resources to develop strategies that can proactively preserve your privacy online and offline. We’ll discuss how to develop self-care tools for writing and building a network for community care. Because your story deserves to be written and read.
