Write your story in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s house! This workshop provides writers of all ages and levels a supportive and inspirational environment where they can craft and share their efforts at writing for social justice. The theme of “perspective” will be explored through expert-led prompts, activities, and discussion, as participants will learn how to use their writing skills to bear witness, build empathy, and advocate for positive change. Participants will also contribute to an onsite public reading and discussion of Frederick Douglass’s “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Writers are welcome to bring something they’ve been working on or begin a new piece at the workshop. Lunch, coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided. Space is very limited. Registration closes one week prior to the workshop.
$25 for members and Hartford residents: $40 for non-members
