Speak Up: Creative Writing + Performance (Fall 2023)
Saturday, October 7 @ 3:00 pm
Saturdays, September 23 — November 4, 2023, from 3:00 p.m.—4:00 p.m. EST
Join us online for Speak Up, a teen creative writing program supporting the artistic and professional growth of teens.
In this FREE virtual creative writing workshop mini-series, teens will partner with experienced teaching artists to empower the creative writing process, from drafting to performance to publishing, to boost literacy and empower youth in Miami through community-based writing activities.
The program is open to all teens (ages 13-19) and is as free of charge as it is free of homework. No previous experience necessary!
October 7: Instructor Ann Liang
Ann Liang is a recent graduate of the University of Melbourne. Born in Beijing, she grew up travelling back and forth between China and Australia, but somehow ended up with an American accent. When she isn’t writing, she can be found making over-ambitious to-do lists, binge-watching dramas, and having profound conversations with her pet labradoodle about who’s a good dog.
Her upcoming novels include the YA rom-com I HOPE THIS DOESN’T FIND YOU (out Feb 6, 2024), the YA speculative I AM NOT JESSICA CHEN, and her adult historical debut A SONG TO DROWN RIVERS.
