Roots. Wounds. Words.: A Literary Arts Revolution for BIPOC Storytellers presents "Penning My Pieces: How To Piece Together Essays From This Puzzle Called Life" — a 6-week creative nonfiction writing workshop. Penning My Pieces is a virtual literary arts container for Brooklyn residents who identify as Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and of color. Participating storytellers will read and learn from the contemporary narrative nonfiction of BIPOC storytellers, pen personal essays anchored in literary craft and centering their own lived experiences, as well as perform their literary art at an online community storyteller showcase.
