The Write In Anniversary Workshop

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Donation

We’re celebrating one-year with The Write In and Maya Angelou’s birthday!

About this Event

The Write In is a creative space for writers of all levels and backgrounds to explore writing prompts inspired by Black women and other writers. Each month we gather, write, and share without judgement.

We launched 1-year ago, on Maya Angelou’s birthday, to kick-off National Poetry Month. Join us for this special celebration as we honor Dr. Angelou and, as usual, gather to write and celebrate Black creatives.

About the Facilitator: LySaundra Campbell is a storyteller and editor based in New York City. She is the editor/writer at a social justice organization based in Washington, D.C. and longtime advocate for gender and racial justice.

Her words are on platforms like The Washington Post. Shondaland, Rewire News, Sojourners, Carefree Magazine, The Witness Black Christian Collective, 21Ninety, The New Territory Magazine, Elite Daily, Blavity, and more.

When she isn’t advocating for social and political liberation, you can find her with friends, playing or listening to music, curled up with a book, or fangirling over Issa Rae.

About Social Soundtrack: This is the soundtrack of our resistance and our resilience.

The purpose of Social Soundtrack is to create opportunities for community, storytelling, and healing across the African Diaspora through creative art and cultural expression.
