Experienced and beginning writers welcome! Fiction and non-fiction writers and poets welcome!
During four sessions, beginning Saturday Oct. 29th and continuing on Nov. 5th, 12th, and 19th, participants will discuss elements of a story, brainstorm, write, share, respond to, and edit the short stories/essays/poems composed during the workshop. Partipants will also read and analyze some mainstream media depictions of the movement and discuss how our personal stories can counter these distorted representations.
At the end of the workshop, participants will decide how we would like to publish or distribute our work, hopefully through collaboration with working groups at Occupy Philly!
