Education, Social Justice, and Public Voice

EDUCATION, SOCIAL JUSTICE, & PUBLIC VOICE:
A WRITING WORKSHOP & RETREAT

To see reviews from previous workshops, visit here.

This 5-day “Writing Workshop & Retreat” is geared for educators, scholars, and advocates who seek to broaden and strengthen their toolkit for publishing on education and social justice in both academic and public venues. Participants will learn writing strategies from award-winning scholar Dr. Kevin Kumashiro, as well as his tips for writing for the media and publishing journal articles and books. Participants will have the option to receive individual mentoring on their writing goals, as well as to join a small-group discussion on short drafts of their writing. When not in sessions, participants will have ample time to sit in picturesque settings to write.
