18 June 2020 Creative Writing for Social Justice Workshop
The Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies is pleased to invite you to a FREE Creative Writing for Social Justice Workshop provided by Derek Newman-Stille. The workshop is open to Trent University graduate students and faculty and takes place on 18 June 2020 at 2pm.
Often creative writing is thought of as a fun escape rather than social justice work, but social justice can be achieved through art and art can be a means to provoke new and creative forms of thinking. This online, free workshop will give you a chance to access your creative side and explore possibilities for using creative writing to work toward transformation and change. We will explore ideas of social justice and participate in activities to engage your creativity.
This workshop will be provided by 8 time Prix Aurora Award winning writer, editor, activist, and author Derek Newman-Stille. Derek is a queer, nonbinary, disabled PhD student and instructor at Trent University. They teach various courses related to social justice for the departments of Women & Gender Studies, Canadian Studies, and English Literature.
The workshop will be via Zoom, and registration is required.
