Writing Your Truth: Teen Writing Workshop
What’s cool? There are a lot of answers. They might involve dance moves, clothing, the way someone moves or sits. But way too often, being ‘cool’ gets mixed up with not speaking your own truth. Lots of we are ashamed of the hard things we’ve been through instead of proud; sometimes we feel more like a victim than a survivor. But the truth is that staying on our feet and finding a way to tell about it is as cool as it gets
That’s what we’ll do in this special workshop: find a way to start telling our stories and redefining cool through spoken word, hip hop, poetry, letters to important people, or just good old rants.
This free workshop is led by Eli Hastings. Eli Hastings has placed work in many literary magazines, been nominated for a Pushcart, and published his debut book, “Falling Room”, in 2005.
