We’re partnering up with Apogee Journal, and with the generous support of the Brooklyn Arts Council, to bring you one digital and eight craft-based writing and editing workshops in our conference room at 80 Hanson Pl, Brooklyn: Writing Resistance 3.0: Make Space for the Margins. The workshops will be led by Apogee contributors and community members: sára abdullah, Jennifer Baker, Jennifer Bartlett, LaTasha N.
