Episode 23: Writing on the Margins: Community Outreach in Shelters and Correctional Facilities
(Christopher Arnold, Ross Carper, Ryan Downey, Nicole Piasecki, Sami Schalk) This panel offers strategies for expanding outreach programs to shelters and correctional facilities. Coordinators from University of Notre Dame, The Denver Writing Project, and Eastern Washington University will speak to the rewards and challenges of working with these traditionally under-served populations, and share procedures for launching similar programs. We share the philosophy that creative writers can affect social change by bringing literature to the margins of our communities.
