Join 826CHI for a Workshop that uses writing to explore what it means to be a member of the LGBTQ community in America today. If you identify as LGBTQ, know someone who does, or are simply interested in the topic, then you have a story brewing inside you! We will explore the genres of memoir, poetry, and personal essay as we revisit transformative moments in our personal history and consider the formation of our value and belief systems. At the end of the workshop, each student will receive a chapbook that contains their work, alongside the work of their classmates.
For students in grades 7-12 3 sessions: March 18th, March 25th, and April 1st 3:30-5:30 pm, Saturdays only Instructor: Molly Sprayregen
Students must be able to attend all sessions.
Deadline to apply is January 29th. Please make sure that BOTH Maria@826chi.org and Mike@826chi.org are in your address book (we don't want our messages to go to your Spam folder!).
