Level: For Everyone
Adult (18+)
25 seats max

This workshop is designed for those of us, including adults, parents and their middle to high school-aged children, with AD(H)D, executive functioning disorders and learning disabilities. Those of us who have neurological differences face specific challenges when it comes to creative writing. Fun exercises, group sharing and discussions, and a supportive atmosphere will offer new strategies for tackling the writing process. We’ll brainstorm solutions and workarounds for challenges around attention and sensory processing, difficulties with linear thinking and sequencing, hyperfocus, and more. Expect to experiment with creative writing, drawing, and writing by hand as well as on the computer. 

Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who have been underrepresented in it due to cost, racism, immigration status, language access, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that these 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.
