Writing Workshop Series in Partnership with JFON 6th–8th Grade

Join Read and Write Kalamazoo for creative writing workshops through a partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) Michigan. Call us for more information and to resister! 269-743-7005

These workshops support and embrace individual dialects, accents, and expanded modes of communication, and students will not be pressured to assimilate into or adhere to American cultural and linguistic norms. We'll focus on creating a collaborative space that centers the participants’ identities and narratives as they explore their own personal experiences.

After the workshops are all complete, there will be a celebration where youth can share their work if they choose.
