Writing for Social Change

Writing for Social Change is designed to build persuasive writing skills as tools for social justice and cultural critique. In composition projects such as Op/Eds, multimodal video and image pieces, and think pieces, participants will learn a range of techniques used to put culture into focus and build advocacy skills.
