Writing for Social Change [Lola E. Peters]
All Levels | Whether writing essays, short stories, or novels, writing effectively is as much craft as art. Unlike speech, where you can use facial expression or vocal inflection to clarify the passion and meaning of your words, writing requires skill to convey feeling and context. Explore what makes an article compelling and how you can harness those elements to write effectively. In the first session we’ll identify elements of effective social justice writing and write our own short pieces. In the second week we’ll strengthen what you’ve written.
