Writing & Activism Workshop w/ Apogee Journal

Writing and Activism

workshop up the Hudson

with Apogee Journal


Apogee, founded by Columbia University MFA students in 2011, is an organization and publication aimed at providing a platform for unheard voices. By elevating underrepresented voices in literature, and featuring content that interrogates the status quo, Apogee combines literature and activism. The workshop will focus on the ways in which activism and literature intersect, to give participants ideas of how to incorporate social and cultural critique in their writing, and to become more engaged in the issues they're interested in. Readings include Roxane Gay, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde and Apogee contributors. Open to writers and readers at all levels.
