WORD Workshop for Teens
Sunday, May 5, 2019 @ 1:30 pm
225 NE 59th Street, Miami, FL 33137 United States
Writer and journalist Ebonie Ledbetter will lead a writing workshop for teenagers on the complex issues of identity and belonging. The students will learn elements of fiction and creative nonfiction to create pieces that are meant to be performed, heard, and experienced. They will learn how writing can be a tool for empowerment—giving voice to the voiceless who might otherwise be afraid to speak up or have been silenced in the face of discrimination and injustice. Focusing their writing on the Self, students will examine their life experiences and improve their storytelling skills. After the students have workshopped their work, they’ll celebrate with an “author’s chair,” where they’ll share their writing with the group. (in English)
