In the era of #ownvoices, it is more important than ever to learn how to write our own truths. In this three week course, we will be talking about how to write fiction, nonfiction and/or poetry from our perspective. We will talk about bringing out #ownvoices in our writing lives and in our wider circle, as well as touch on submitting to markets we might not feel would be interested in our voice. We will do exercises to bring out our individual life experiences, and learn to feel comfortable talking in our own authentic voice that is often unseen in mainstream culture. Learn more here.
