Writers Lane at the LightHouse: A Writing Workshop Series with Blind Authors Spring & Summer 2023
This virtual writing workshop series will help you grow confident in several genres: poetry, personal essay/op ed, journalism, and fiction. It will also address professionalism including: how to submit your work, how to pitch ideas to editors, and what it takes to have a writing career. Each month a visiting author will give students an overview of the genre, give an assignment for the following week, and provide spoken feedback on a portion of the work as well as suggestions for next steps.
