This drop-in will help writers call upon their own experience of living in vibrant communities. We'll talk about how to write about our neighbors, community members, family and friends in ways that show nuance and love, while also bringing others (our readers) into our worlds by providing specific details and observations from our unique perspectives. This session is for writers of all levels of experience-- for poets, writers of fiction, and nonfiction alike!

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.

Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided (at sites that allow food/drink). Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.
