Virtual Public Workshops

Earlier in 2020, at the onset of COVID-19, we here at NY Writers Coalition deployed our corps of writers & activists—our workshop leaders—to provide virtual creative writing workshops to our community. In spite of the difficulties of these times, each workshop continues to bring reminders that most people are caring, loving, creative, and compassionate in the face of the most challenging circumstances. In our virtual public workshops, our leaders and participants have been able to form deeply supportive communities, and their stories that have emerged continue to help name what may feel unspeakable at this moment. Please find their words below.
