Endorsed by Curators:
NY Writers Coalition has served hundreds of men, women, and youth through our Criminal Justice Writing Program on Rikers Island, NYC.
This November, were excited to continue the mission of Free Minds Book Club & Writing Workshop: to respond to and uplift our fellow writers--behind bars or not--as they dig deeper into their writing practice through our 2017 installment of On the Same Page.
If you've never been before, here's how it goes:
NYWC will provide and distribute copies of poems written by NYWC workshop members currently incarcerated on Rikers Island who would like feedback on their writing.
These poems will be passed around, and YOU are invited to contribute remarks that respond, uplift, and encourage.
At the end of the evening, the poems covered with our inspiring comments will be collected and mailed back to their authors.
This event will take place at The Brooklyn Commons on Wednesday, November 15th from 7:00 9:00 PM and will be hosted by NY Writers Coaltion. This a free, wheelchair-accessible event that is open to everyone and everything--we hope to see you there!If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
