Resistance Through Writing is focused on producing creative writing as a form of political protest. Participants will engage in a community discussion on the role of writing in times of resistance, reading excerpts from writers like Claudia Rankine, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Rebecca Solnit, and more. The goal of the session is to provide participants with the tools and resources to write and share their own works of political protest in the genres of poetry and/or nonfiction. Every participant will leave the session with at least a partial first draft of a piece of writing on a topic related to the election.
