Trainer: Tanisha Arena, M.S., Executive Director, Arise for Social Justice, Springfield, MA

Tanisha Arena

Class Description: As activists and social change leaders, we must often write words that inspire, clarify, take a position, or set the record straight. We often over‐labor our writing projects and then are less productive and prolific than we might be. The focus of this workshop will be on getting over the I‐cannot‐start hurdle, and the I‐am‐bogged‐down problem. We will discuss what people are writing or have written in the past and cover tips for writing often, writing with ease, and writing with power. All writing abilities and experiences welcome.
