Writing Resistance Returns!

We’re collaborating with Apogee Journal and with the generous support of the Brooklyn Arts Council, with a six week craft based writing and editing workshops: Writing Resistance 2.0. The workshops will be led by Apogee editors and contributors: t’ai freedom ford, Dennis Norris II, Yin Q, Raquel Salas Rivera, NYWC Program Director Timothy DuWhite, Joey De Jesus and Alexandra Watson. Staying true to Apogee’s mission of creating accessible and social engaging programming, these workshops will be affordable, inclusive, and attentive to the ways identity informs reading and writing practices.
