Pushing Through Workshop


PUSHING THROUGH: A Political Healing Writing Workshop

On January 6, 2021, an attempted coup intended to uphold the fascism and white supremacy that has defined the Trump administration was displayed on news channels everywhere. All of this was unprecedented, and many are still struggling with how to recover from those traumatic events, especially as we continue to grapple with the global pandemic and the economic depression it has left in its wake.

NY Writers Coalition is rooted in providing space for writers from historically disenfranchised populations; Pushing Through offers space for writers who appreciate community as we live with the challenges in our national and global politics, much due to the years of turmoil caused in part by the Trump administration.

Do you need a safe space to process the most recent crises? Do you yearn to be in community during a time that has forced supreme solitude for so many? Or do you just need some time set aside to get some writing done? This Political Healing workshop may be born out of response to the events that transpired over the years, but it will follow all of the guidelines of the NYWC model and will be open to all writers, regardless of race, class, creed, or gender identity.

This workshop will meet on Sundays from 3:00 – 5:00 PM ET.
