Let’s build the world we desire! In this generative workshop, we will dive into our visions of the worlds we would like to exist in. How can the sentiments and struggles of today’s experience shape this alternate reality? What does your internal world say about the external? With these questions in mind, we will explore world-building by emoting & feeling our way through its existence. We will read from journals such as FIYAH Lit Mag, Skew Magazine, Black Quantum Futurism, discuss what we read, and write to prompts. All levels of writing experience and genres welcome!

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.
